The AcerView 7154s device driver is used by its manufacturer to provide the underlying operating system with the basic information about the hardware as well as extended features built into the device. The information contained in the device driver is stored by the operating system in the Windows Registry to make it readily available for any requesting software application. The information is also valuable to the video system of the host machine. This data is used by the graphics card to find out the exact values that can be set for every attribute of the display monitor. For example the graphics card may be able to support resolutions that go beyond 1280 by 1024 pixels but the hardware monitor can only display a maximum of 1024 by 768 pixels so the necessary adjustments will be made to attain the best display quality possible.
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
Another aspect to be considered when dealing with the device driver of the display monitor is that it is not equipped with any processing chip. This means that it relies on the instructions that it receives from the graphics card and renders it accordingly. Majority of the processing is done by the graphics processor chip, the device driver of the video adapter must be able to correctly communicate with the device driver of the AcerView 7154s in order to send the correct video signals otherwise display errors can occur. The graphics card and some software applications also provide the computer user with user interfaces that help to control the settings for the display hardware. This process is made possible by the communication layer instituted by the device driver. The AcerView 7154s device driver also ensures that the correct limit values are registered avoiding the setting of the display properties beyond the capabilities of the monitor.
