I am using HP DV6000 laptop. I have got NVIDIA GeForce GO 7400 card installed.

I just downloaded and installed UBUNTU 9.04.

i was amazed by the kool graphics and the 3D effects. now i am not able to enable any of that.

can you please let me know why?
Is it a problem with the drivers or something is wrong with my laptop.

VISTA was working fine. but UBUNTU is not fine.
