This display monitor hardware component was designed to connect to its host computer system using the 15 pin analog D-sub port. It complies with the standards set for the Video Graphics Array allowing it to support display images from virtually all types of graphics cards in the computer industry. The operation of the AcerView 79t (especially when connected to older computer systems) requires the installation of the manufacturer supplied device driver. The device driver is actually a software component which provides the information layout file associated with the supported hardware. It contains different values for the make, model, and manufacturer of the display monitor along with values for its EDID, DPMS, and refresh rates among others. These values are actually descriptive of the functional capability of the AcerView 79t as designed by its manufacturer. The values are important for other components of the computer system to understand how the display hardware operates.
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 display component of a computer system actually involves not only the monitor but also the video card. The video card is responsible for processing all graphics related information that is passed on by the software application. This process frees up important system resources allowing the computer system to handle other requests. The processed data from the video card is sent directly to the AcerView 79t using video signals. The videos signals that are sent by the graphics card use specific frequencies. The frequency is determined by the capability of the display hardware. This is determined by the graphics card from the information provided by the device driver for the AcerView 79t and similar monitors. Computer monitors although externally identical operate on individual frequencies, if the video signal is either too low or too high, the display may become garbled or garbage. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and AcerView 79t errors before installing any driver updates.
