Designed with a 17-inch Cathode Ray Tube display technology, the ADI MicroScan 5AP connects to a host computer system via a 15-pin D-sub connector which can carry analog video signals from the video adapter card. The process of video signal transmission supported by the device driver of this hardware component usually undergoes a conversion process. Normally the video data is already in digital format but needs to be converted into its analog counterpart for the sole purpose of transmitting the signal via the video cable. The received video signal may be converted back to its digital form prior to its rendering to the computer user. This type of conversion process happens without involving the computer user with the technical details and is handled in part by the device driver of the ADI MicroScan 5AP computer monitor. The device driver also functions in conjunction with the other elements of the computer system's display subsystem to deliver 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
The ADI MicroScan 5AP is characterized as a multiscanning or multisync computer display monitor. This means that it can automatically adjust to the frequency of the video signal that it receives from the graphics processing card. In the same manner the device driver of this particular hardware component has the capability of supporting the display from different graphics display systems like SVGA, EGA, MDA, VGA, and Hercules among others. These types of computer display monitors are widely considered as more flexible compared to their fixed frequency counterparts. This also means that the ADI MicroScan 5AP can virtually connect to any type of graphics processing card in the computer market. The device driver allows the computer user to gain access to the display control panel applet to implement its maximum display resolution of 1280 by 1024 pixels. It also operates at a 60 Hz refresh rate based on the recommendations of its manufacturer. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ADI MicroScan 5AP errors before installing any driver updates.
