I recently installed Ubuntu 11.10. I was using Windows XP earlier. After installing, when i tried to play music, there was no audio. Also the maximum screen resolution is 1024x768 while in XP it was 1440x900. I think i need to install drivers from intel but i gave up after unsuccessfully searching drivers for ubuntu for a whole day. Please kindly help.

Audio format like MP3, mpeg are restrcited format. So, only the audio formats are not shipped with the Ubuntu. To play audio and video files you have to install ubuntu-restricted-extras.
Here is the useful link for the installation of ubuntu-restricted
You can change resolution of the ubuntu desktop, system --> Preference ---> Monitor.
