Ubuntu already contains almost all drivers that are available for Linux, and your motherboard is fairly old and generic. You need to specify what component you need drivers for.

Assuming you have your windows 8.1 on disks, make sure your HP is set to boot from disk and put disk in and boot your computer up. The windows install should start and you can choose to delete Ubuntu and install windows. Remove any partitions that it displays and choose to install windows on the entire disk. After that just follow the prompts and windows will install.

First, make sure you have JDK 7 installed. Then,
  1. Install alien with the command sudo apt-get install alien. This is used to convert RPM packages
  2. Download the Oracle SQL Developer package if you have not done so already.
  3. Run alien on the RPM package: alien -d package.rpm.
  4. Install the package with the command sudo dpkg -i package.deb. If there is a message saying there is a dependency problem while installing it, you can fix it by running sudo apt-get -f install.

Sometimes, this may not be the case with you, you need to install things like Java and Adobe and flash before you can use some sites. That has happened to me after a fresh Ubuntu install.

You didn't say what the PC specs are and what you are running.
Reinstall video drivers. If that won't help - check if your PC is overheating. If not - check if the application's or game is too heavy for your system.
