This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

On Linux, for mainstream hardware that has been on the market for some months, there's almost never need to install any drivers.
I'd recommend you run a live system from thumbdrive oder DVD and test everything. Your Ubuntu installation medium should allow this. Connect to your wifi, test ethernet, the usb ports, the touch pad and I guess it should work.
Check out the support for your external hardware like printers or scanners.
