What is a Video Driver?
A video driver is an electronic circuit that contains a program which allows graphics-mode application programs and operating systems to communicate with and control a monitor and display video at a chosen resolution with the desired number of colors. Video drivers might need to match the video display adapter that is installed in the system.
