I am looking for a Windows driver for the mini video port on a Macbook. I believe it is referred to as the Apple Mini DVI port.

Thanks in advance for any help.

All of the hardware drivers are included in the Boot Camp driver package, although you will have to run the Apple Software Update to get up to date on the latest driver package.

First, install the Boot Camp drivers from your OS X CD (while running Windows). Then run Apple Software Update and let it download and install the latest driver package.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Its a clean windows load, OSX is not on the hard drive.

Is there a standalone driver for said video port?

This has nothing to do with OS X. But the Boot Camp package is needed from the OS X disc. You don't need to have OS X installed to use it.

Not that I'm aware of.
