    How have you tried to get effects working? I'm guessing you have tried setting the Appearance Preferences , Visual effects to extra??

    you might tell us what graphic card you have , most are good ,but some need tweaking.

    Try looking under Additional Drivers.
    What are the features that aren't working? One solution will probably not fix all of them, unless they are all x-related when x is any one specific category of issues one may be having with an Ubuntu-based laptop.

    Ubuntu *should* support most Intel graphics, but you aren't the first person to have problems with them.

    What version of Ubuntu are you trying to run? If it's 10.04, try 11.04; I had a friend with broken Intel graphics in an earlier version who installed 11.04 and suddenly everything worked. If they aren't working on 11.04 I don't know what to suggest. Is this a laptop or a desktop?
    Intel core i5-2400, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti
