I know i'm going to sound like I am winding you up but can anyone tell me what NVIDIA does?
I have just seen an icon for it on my computer (only had it a few weeks).
I've no idea what this is for or what it does??

nvidia is the name of a company that makes graphics chips for graphics cards and motherboards, and also chipsets for use with motherboards.

So the icon is something to do with software for either a graphics card or a motherboard.

It's difficult to be more precise - what is the name of the program that the icon causes to run?

(right click - properties)

It is an icon in the bottom right of the screen wihere the volume icon is and when I click it ,it gives me a lot of other options that I can do ie colour quality,performance and quality settings,refresh rate

It says NVIDIA corporation copyright 1998-2003

It's the control for the graphics chip of the parameters you mention.

It's pretty normal to have one with an nvidia chip. I've got one.
