Your question is a bit general. Installing a driver may involve hacking the kernel and loading it perhaps as a module, what driver were you wanting to get rid of and what one were you thinking of installing? I haven't used Gnome for some time now, the only suggestion I can make is look under setting like system in their menus. Using commands like dmesg, lspci, lsusb may help to get detailed information.
