What is video drivers?

Question

I just finished wiping my whole hard drive on my computer. I have just finished installing windows 95, and upgrading to windows 98. I can't seem to change the monitor setting from 16 colors to anything more, which isn't right. I don't know what the kind the video card is. How can I change it to 1-bit or 2-bit color? or even 256 colors?
