hi all i am a very new user to ubuntu
been a windows user for a long time and am trying to make a change in my life
delete wow and installed ubuntu :D
hoping i can change a bit of my lifestyle
i think most of my hardware got installed normally
but am still not sure

my problem is that my sound is a bit low
and when i press on the sound icon to raise the volume
i noticed that the bar only works 50%
so from 0 to 50% there is absoluteley no sound
then from 50% to 100% the sound rises up very quickly
so am wondering if its anything to do with my installation or not
also i wanna know if the vga is installed properly since it i had to enable it and its installation bcoz its not open source or anything
thanks alot for your help

i read online bout a command in terminal to get pc specs
here is what i got when i used it
