The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is a video card that is built into the central circuit board or motherboard on some PC's with an Intel processor. This on-board, or sometimes called integrated video card, can not be removed, but can be replaced by plugging in a separately purchased video card to the motherboard. Before upgrading to a new non-integrated video card uninstall the drivers for the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 to avoid errors and conflicts. A driver is a specific set of files that allows a hardware device to communicate with the other components of the PC.
