The ACER V203W (Analog) is built with a high brightness to contrast ratio which is expected to deliver higher quality images to the computer user. The sharp and crisp details not only of graphical but textual contents as well are intended to enhance the computing experience of virtually every type of computer user. This particular display device features a 20-inch widescreen viewable area that will allow for the implementation of higher resolution rates. The ability to define the correct resolution rate or maximize the native resolution intended by the manufacturer would depend primarily on the installation of the correct device driver. Essentially, especially for newer operating system environments, the display monitor is normally covered by generic display drivers. These types of device drivers are not intended to fully activate all feature sets or to make use of the maximum potential of the supported device. Rather, these types of device drivers are designed to make the supported hardware component functional to be readily used by the operating system platform.
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 ACER V203W is capable of receiving both digital and analog video signals from the corresponding graphics processing card. Part of the functionality of the device driver is to correctly identify the source of the video signal. For newer graphics processing cards the computer user has the option of using a DVI or D-sub video output port. Normally a DVI output on the video adapter would correspond to a DVI input on the display monitor. The same is normally observed with D-sub or analog connections. However, There are instances wherein a computer user may use a DVI to VGA cable connector which will allow the connection of a DVI to a D-sub port. The device driver would be partly responsible for correctly handling the signal that is sent through the video cable by the graphics processing card. The difference between DVI and analog connections is mainly within the manner of signal conversion as it leaves the video output port of the video adapter. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ACER V203W (Analog) errors before installing any driver updates.
