View Full Version : How exactly do video drivers work?

Despite all the time I've wasted swearing at them, I just realized that I know very little about my video drivers. Why does the vesa driver show a 6mm black line on the left of my screen, while the nvidia-96xx driver show a 3mm black line on the left of my screen?

Links are good - I want a technical answer that I may need to read tomorrow when I'm awake to understand.
