Have you installed the relevant proprietary drivers from System -> Administration -> Additional Drivers?

Some pieces of hardware have proprietary drivers, which means that their source code is not available to Ubuntu developers. As such, you'll have to install them separately using the above menu option. Just open up the Additional Drivers window, select the appropriate driver and click "Activate" at the bottom of the window. The driver should get downloaded and installed automatically.
