A couple of days ago I bought an Acer Aspire V3-571G laptop without a system installed on it. The only thing that was there was Linux Linpus. I created a bootable CD with Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit - I read that my processor was 64 bit and that it might be a good configuration for my gear (I'm not especially fluent with all the computer stuff, still trying to learn) and replaced Linpus with Ubuntu.
Everything seemed to work fine, but there're few exceptions to that which came pass my way.
My bluetooth doesn't work. It seems to be switched on, but when I check my system settings the button is actually off, and I can't drag it 'perminently' to the 'on' position. Tried a couple of commands I found on the net, none of them helped and there was no word whatsoever in my BIOS settings about enabling bluetooth.
My card reader has some serious problems with copying more than one file at a time. I tried to put some music on my phone through a MicroSD card adapter (because my bluetooth doesn't work) and it got stuck every single time I copied an album on it.
I'm not sure if all my drivers were properly installed, so I checked in the terminal if it could tell me sth about my graphics.
sudo lshw -c displayand what i got was:

As I said I'm no expert and not english-speaking generally, but it doesn't seem to be right. I've got a NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M.
