A quick search shows this has the NVIDIAŽ GeForce GT 525M chipset. If that is correct Goto nvidia.com and download either 32bit or 64bit geforce drivers that corresponds to your ubuntu version.

Then on ubuntu 11.10

sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev
sudo service lightdm stop
# note above kills graphical desktop manager to allow nvidia driver
# to be installed, so login now and complete following
sudo sh /path/to/your/nvidia_driver_you_downloaded.run
sudo service lightdm start

On older ubuntu replace "lightdm" with "gdm"

Note, everytime ubuntu updates your kernel you will need to repeat above so keep your nvidia*.run file around in a handy location.
