In general there have been very few innovations in the presentation of display monitor hardware for computer systems. Technologically speaking, the newest add-on that can be considered is the incorporation of input ports to accommodate new video formats like DVI and HDMI among others. The role of the device driver for the Acer FP501 and similar display monitors is to correctly interpret the information that is being transmitted via these input ports. In this context the Acer FP501 and its device driver functions in combination with the graphics card and its own device driver. Every display monitor hardware has its unique way of handling display representations like color and depth for example. The ways these are handled are normally reflected in information or profile files which are installed in the host computer system for use by the installed software applications.
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
These profiles which are also known as ICC profiles explicitly determine how display properties are handled by the Acer FP501 hardware. The information contained in these profiles is extremely important especially when attempting to calibrate the Acer FP501 in order to accurately match the display with the printout. One of the most important functions of the display monitor like the Acer FP501 is to accurately represent the processed information. This means that if the image for example is supposed to be color red, it should appear as such to the computer user. The process of calibrating supported by the driver makes sure that the same color shade used in the display is the same or as close as possible when sent to the printing device. This is likewise important when dealing with applications like image editors and computer gaming software. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Acer FP501 errors before installing any driver updates.
