Acer aspire AO722

My first time post,..I purchased the aspire back in 2012 I believe and shortly after I uninstalled windows and loaded Lubuntu,(currently running 16.04 Xenial 64 bit)...Im wanting to see if upgrading the driver on this chip will help in playing .mkv videos,(they stutter and are choppy in VLC and other players)....Went to additional drivers to see if there was a newer version there but there was nothing...Was needing help on how to find correct driver.....Thanks in advance,

I ran this...

john@john-AO722:~$ sudo lshw -C video
