No, your nvidia graphics has nothing to do with it, and the chipset
drivers (I assume you are talking about) are a part of the kernel. You
can find out some info about them by modinfo <module name>, i.e.
joe@jmorris:~> lsmod | grep nv
sata_nv 30084 0
libata 145056 1 sata_nv
joe@jmorris:~> /sbin/modinfo sata_nv

You can also get info about your hardware via /sbin/lspci and even more
info for the driver module by examining the kernel sources. HTH.
