Some information about your hardware would be helpful. What kind of graphics card and sound card? Also which distribution are you running?

Distribution as in Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu, Slackware, SuSE, etc. This helps in getting an answer because different distributions use different package (read software) management systems, such as apt, yum or compiled source.
