The Acer AL718 is an LCD display monitor that makes use of the standard 15 pin D-sub connector to plug into the VGA output port of the graphics processing card. The Acer AL718 normally functions in conjunction with its associated display driver in order to reach optimal operating conditions. The Acer AL718 may be supported by the Plug and Play technology of newer operating system platforms using generic display drivers. These generic display drivers were designed simply to make the display monitor functional unlike the associated display driver for the Acer AL718 which was specifically designed by its manufacturers to support the feature sets built into the hardware. The device driver makes it possible for the operating system and the installed software applications to maximize usage of the display properties and any add-on features of the Acer AL718 device.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.

Once correctly installed, the driver for the Acer AL718 allows the computer user to correctly set the values for the display properties like resolution and refresh rates. These two properties largely determine the type and quality of the display that will be rendered to the computer user. The quality of course remains dependent on the capability of the installed graphics card. Another important function of the Acer AL718 driver is that is allows backward compatibility with older components of the computer system. Since the Acer AL718 is relatively new, the device driver makes sure that the instructions that are sent from the graphics card can be readily understood by the display monitor. In this context the device driver acts like an interpreter to allow for the smooth flow of data. It also hides from the user the display technical aspects.
