Enabling Visual Effects on Acer AspireOne 532h-2254 Netbook

Hello; I am very new to Linux so please be as descriptive as possible.
I have found the visual effects options to be grayed out; how might I enable my 3d acceleration and whatnot?

Acer AspireOne 532h-2254 Netbook, running UNE (Ubuntu Netbook Edition) 10.04.

Thank you so much
