I have a suspicion that by "drive" you mean "drivers". Otherwise, please explain what "touch drive" is – Sergey Oct 19 '12 at 3:22
lol,im no good at english:) Maybe I should express it" I need driveGuard and laptop touchpad driver ".I google the drivers but cannot get answer. Would you have some method to solve it? thanks @Sergey – Peter Oct 19 '12 at 4:15

I interpret your question as : how do I install additional drivers ?

Launch the "Software Sources" app. Go to the "Additional drivers" tab. Here are options to install new drivers.

Did my explanation help ?

Thanks, but I've tried as your answer, it's just say "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system", maybe the "Additional drivers" cannot identify the drivers..... – Peter Oct 19 '12 at 10:47
