The 774FT display monitor hardware belongs to the Flatron product family manufactured by LG Electronics. This hardware component is supported by the Plug and Play functionality of newer operating system platforms. When attached to the host computer system the operating system initially assigns a generic display monitor driver. This display driver is built into the operating system and was not designed to activate the other feature sets of the hardware but only to make it usable. The absence of the correct display driver for the 774FT hardware can lead to some display problems that can be attributed to excessive configuration values. The operating system may also mistakenly update the generic monitor driver with something that may not be compatible since not enough information has been placed into the Windows Registry that is associated with the attached hardware. The graphics card may also send processed information that cannot be accurately displayed because it exceeds the capability of the device.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The manufacturer provided device driver for the 774FT display monitor usually contains not only the system files but also the color profiles that are intended for use with the hardware. These color profiles are useful when dealing with graphics editing applications that require exact color blending or display on the monitor. In some instances a software application may define a certain color but may be displayed in a different shade on the screen. The result is that the computer user will over compensate in editing and when the image is printed the color is totally wrong. One of the most important roles of the device driver is to make sure that everything matches. The matching begins from what is defined in the application to its processing by the graphics driver until it is finally rendered on the display monitor. The process of making the display and the printed output the same is referred to as calibration which requires the correct device driver for all concerned devices. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and 774FT errors before installing any driver updates.
