comment ubuntu & asus laptop graphics card problem
Looking a bit further into it, you might have confused AMD's beta/experimental drivers with their stable release. There is a clear distinction between the two. Beta drivers are bleeding edge and prone to bugs and instability, but mainline releases are not.

comment ubuntu & asus laptop graphics card problem
I agree that in the past, some people have experienced some issues with installing drivers. But I would not use that as circumstantial evidence that all of AMD's drivers are broken altogether. It's like looking up all the problems people have with their TV's and then conclude you should never buy a TV. Their Linux drivers have matured in the past few years, and now they even have a Ubuntu-specific driver which should work quite nicely with 14.04.

-1 Proprietary drivers provided by AMD for its latest hardware are not "bleeding edge, untested, newest, nor possibly buggy". AMD thouroughly tests their drivers before release.

Have you made sure that it's not muted? Try running alsamixer in the terminal and double check volume settings.

comment Airplane Mode in Network Settings
If you are getting "fail to flush all tx fifo queues" from your iwlwifi wireless kernel module (pertaining to Intel Centrino N cards) this is probably why.
