The AlphaScan 411 is a CRT (cathode ray tube) monitor display that provides users with a display resolution of 1024 X 768. CRT monitor displays are capable of receiving pictures via an analog cable. The same signal will be then decoded by the display controller that is tasked to manage the monitor’s internal components. At the monitor display’s back portion, an electron gun functions to fire electrons towards the monitor’s front portion via a vacuum that is located inside the monitor’s tube. This electron gun is also called the ‘cathode’ – thus the electrons fired by the cathode (electron gun) being known as cathode rays. These cathode rays are capable of corresponding to the red, green and blue channels of the video and display card. At the AlphaScan 411 CRT monitor’s neck is an anode. This anode will be magnetized in accord with the instructions that will come from the display controller.
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
When the electrons pass the anode, they will be pulled or shunted in a single direction. This will however be dependent on the magnetism level of the anode at the time of the electrons’ passing. This action will move the electrons to the accurate portion on the display screen. The electrons then pass thru a mesh which is tasked to define the individual resolution and pixels on the screen. The electrons will then strike the phosphor coating located in the glass screen’s inside portion. Once the electrons strike the phosphor coating, they will instantly light up and will cause the light to shine through the monitor display’s front portion, ultimately resulting in a picture displayed on the screen. There are 3 differently colored phosphors assigned for every pixel. These are known as the phosphor triads. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and AlphaScan 411 errors before installing any driver updates.
