The device driver for the C4A display monitor is a setup information file which allows the hardware component to be hosted on a supported operating system platform. The importance of device drivers for display monitors was highlighted during a time when manufacturers had their own standards and operating system environments were not equipped with built-in drivers. These device drivers allows the operating system to correctly identify the type, manufacturer, and model of the display hardware. The setup file is likewise used to declare the relevant functionalities that are built into the device. These information are placed in the registry database of the operating system to make them available to the relevant software applications and hardware components of the host computer system. The monitor ID of the C4A declared to the operating system platform that the attached display device has a measurement of 14 inches.
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
Aside from the monitor ID the device driver also provides the information on the refresh rate, color profile, and resolution supported by the hardware component. The C4A being an older display monitor is supported by the generic display drivers of newer operating system environments. Despite being supported by these types of systems, the importance of the manufacturer provided device driver cannot be neglected. This is because the manufacturer designed device driver is intended to activate certain features built into the device which generic display drivers cannot control. Generic display drivers likewise may limit the resolution that can be used by the hardware component. Normally operating systems require only a resolution of 800 by 600 pixels to operate correctly. This means that if the C4A display monitor is capable of operating beyond this resolution, it may not be shown to the computer user. The result is that the computer user will not be able to tap into the higher resolution preventing the rendering of textual and graphics contents in a clearer and higher quality nature. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and C4A errors before installing any driver updates.
