You're probably better served by learning one or more SDK's that take full advantage of your hardware, rather than delving down to the hardware level itself. Two excellent candidates:

* DirectX (Windows):

* OpenGL (Linux, Mac, Android, etc):

If you *must* implement your graphics directly in video memory, you should look at the Linux framebuffer:
