A device driver is essentially an information and layout file which is used by the manufacturer to provide the underlying operating system environment with the necessary data to tap into the built-in feature sets of the supported hardware component. It is likewise responsible for providing legacy operating system platforms with the necessary support interface to host the hardware component. This holds true not only for the AcerView 56is but for other devices as well. The device driver for the AcerView 56is can also be used by third party developers to extend the support base to other operating system environments that are not inherently covered by the manufacturer. This type of reengineering is commonly seen in emerging technologies and newer operating system platforms which are just starting to show up in mainstream computing. This is made possible by taking the data delivered by the device driver and tailor fitting it into the framework of the unsupported operating system environment.
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 AcerView 56is is basically a Cathode Ray Tube based computer display monitor which accepts analog video signals from the video adapter. It makes use of a conventional 15-pin D-sub video cable connector. By providing the corresponding device driver the computer user gains access to the actual functionalities of the supported hardware component. The device driver also makes sure that all values presented for the different display attributes are inherently supported by the AcerView 56is device. This allows the host computer system to effectively function while limiting the possible instances for display errors. Being a Cathode Ray Tube based computer display monitor the device driver also provides the computer user with correct limiting values to two display properties, the display resolution and the refresh rate. These two properties are partly responsible for dictating the quality of the display as well as how it is presented on the computer screen. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and AcerView 56is errors before installing any driver updates.
