This Cathode Ray Tube based computer display monitor presents a 15-inch viewing area to the computer user and makes it appropriate for deployment in most home and small office computing environments. It is covered by the generic display drivers of most modern operating system environments. This allows the BENQ V551 to be used immediately by the underlying operating system environment. The settings will be based on the minimum requirements of the host operating system rather than the recommended settings of the manufacturer. From this context there is a huge possibility that the display settings will not be as good a quality as designed by the manufacturer. This is one of the most compelling reasons why the manufacturer provided device driver must be installed. The computer user will not only benefit from improved performance but also will minimize if not totally eliminate potential display errors.
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
According to the BENQ V551 manufacture the native resolution that can be used is 800 by 600 at 85 Hz refresh rate. Essentially for Cathode Ray Tube computer display monitors the issue of flickering is always taken into consideration. This is why manufacturers provide corresponding refresh rates for specific display resolutions. These types of pairings are also referred to as preset display resolutions which allow for the best possible resolution to refresh rate setting. These preset resolutions are not part of the generic device driver and are not made available to the computer user. Wrong refresh rate values can lead to increased display flickers resulting in sever eye strain for the computer user. By using the correct device driver the computer user gains access to the appropriate limiting values for all display attributes. This will allow the computer user to set the display property settings more accurately. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and BENQ V551 errors before installing any driver updates.
