Every computer display monitor like the AcerView 77is is accompanied by a monitor information file which is used to provide the host operating system platform with the necessary details regarding the supported hardware component. The data provided by the monitor information file is included in a centralized database which is accessible to all installed software applications. The monitor information file essentially identifies the type, make, model, and manufacturer of the attached hardware component. It also provides details on the device driver installation process allowing the underlying operating system to keep track of support files that are extracted into the local hard drive. These support files normally correspond to specific feature sets that are built into the AcerView 77is device by its manufacturer. The support files may differ from the support files which are associated by the operating system to its built-in generic device drivers.
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
There are a number of reasons why the manufacturer provided device driver should be used despite the presence of generic device drivers found in the operating system. For one, the software based user interface provided by the manufacturer designed device driver would deliver more accurate display property values. This in turn would result in a more accurate configuration of the different display settings. It would also help minimize the potential display problems that can arise with the use of wrong display setting values. Secondly the manufacturer provided device driver will allow the computer user to competently calibrate the AcerView 77is device. This is because the correct device driver is accompanied by a corresponding color profile which is suited exactly for the supported computer monitor device. This calibration process will result in a more consistent and predictable rendering of graphical and textual data to the computer user. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and AcerView 77is errors before installing any driver updates.
