You stated that I have never provided any assistance with a video driver

I have now demonstrated you to be incorrect.

That has nothing whatever to do with your original statement.

You can apologize for having provided incorrect information and having made an
unfounded assumption about me that you were prepared to correct once the facts
were drawn to your attention.

Or you can be known as being either completely delusional, or as a bald-faced

It's your choice, I suppose.  Which would you prefer?

Again, that's completely irrelevant to your original statement, which I have
proven incorrect.
