The Cornerstone f1800 is a display hardware component that carries an 18-inch tube size designed to make use of a fixed frequency. It also makes use of a conventional HD-15 connector cable that plugs into the graphics card hardware output port. One of the roles of the device driver is to make sure that there is a constant communication layer that supports the data transmission that happens in this port. The device driver of the Cornerstone f1800 also supports both the separate and composite synchronization methods that are utilized by the hardware component at runtime. This means that the presence of the manufacturer provided device driver optimizes the operation of the supported hardware component. The correct device driver also makes it possible for the display component to function as it was intended by its manufacturer. This is compared to using a generic device driver which only makes the hardware component operational.
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
On older operating system platforms, any hardware component requires the installation of its corresponding device driver primarily because of the lack of any built-in hardware drivers. In this instance one of the roles of the device driver is to provide backward compatibility for the Cornerstone f1800 with older computing systems. In the same context the device driver can also be used to create support for inherently unsupported operating system environments. The device driver also provides the controls which will allow the computer user to dictate the various properties of the display hardware. The computer user can therefore benefit from the maximum 1280 by 1024 dots per inch maximum resolution of the Cornerstone f1800 as well as specify the correct frequency depending on the computer user's preferences. The graphics card will also be able to correctly format the instructions that will be sent to the display hardware for rendering to the computer user. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Cornerstone f1800 errors before installing any driver updates.
