The Acer X263W is a computer display monitor which features an HD D-sub and an HDMI interface port which can capably receive video signals from the associated graphics processing card. The maximum resolution supported in either mode is at 1900 by 1200 pixels preferably using a 60 Hz refresh mode. These settings are only functionally activated once the corresponding device driver is installed in the host computer system. Using a generic display driver that is provided by the underlying operating system environment may result in a number of display errors including black screens especially when operating at HDMI mode. Essentially the role of the device driver is to provide an efficient and accurate communication layer that can be utilized by all the components of the display subsystem. If this communication layer breaks apart the computer system experiences different types of display errors. According to computer experts display errors may be attributed either to an unsupported display setting or wrongly formatted display instructions sent by one of the display subsystem elements.
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
Aside from implementing a communication layer for the display subsystem the device driver of the Acer X263W is likewise partly responsible for the deployment of proprietary technologies. Essentially every computer monitor manufacturer will attempt to incorporate an add-on feature into their product which will distinguish it from their competitors. In the case of the Acer X263W the device driver implements the Adaptive Contrast Management as well as the Digital Display Director tools. These technologies are intended to improve the visual display quality of the supported hardware component. Aside from implementing these proprietary technologies in the host computer system the device driver also provides the computer user with the necessary software interface for configuring appropriate display attributes. Many of the controls presented in this software interface corresponds to the onboard controls in front of the display device including those found in the onscreen menu. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Acer X263W errors before installing any driver updates.
