What kind of graphic card do you have? Run this command from a terminal and post the output here.

lspci | grep VGA

Otherwise, look in System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers to see if your card is on the list.

One of the benefits of your new OS is that you no longer usually have to go out into the internet to find drivers, figure out how to install them, etc. The video on your mother board is very likely already supported.

What problems are you having?

Until you tell people what kind of video card do you have and the names of those files that you've downloaded, I don't think anybody can show you how to install a driver for your graphic card. People here can help but they are not psychics!
