The device driver provides the computer user with a software counterpart of the control panel that is found on the front panel of the Cornerstone p1650 display monitor. This means that aside from adjusting various attributes on the device itself the computer user can do the modifications from a software interface. This control panel applet is made possible by the installation of the manufacturer provided device driver. This display driver provides the underlying operating system platform with the necessary values that the computer user can select. The selected values will be implemented globally. This means that all the modified values will be enforced regardless of the active software application. Another role of the device driver is to allow for the implementation of attribute configurations based on the currently active software application. In this instance the defined settings are reverted to their default values once the program is terminated.
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
In terms of functionality the device driver makes it possible for the computer user to take advantage of the maximum resolution that can be supported by the display hardware. In this case the Cornerstone p1650 supports a maximum of 2048 by 1536 dots per inch running at 75Hz. This setting allows for higher quality display with relatively less or no flicker at all. All of the values that are associated with the display hardware must also be supported by the graphics card to ensure maximum functional levels. This means that since the Cornerstone p1650 does not have a built-in processing unit, the graphics card handles all processing and based on the defined capabilities of the display monitor will determine the best possible setting that can be used. The installation of the associated device driver will also ensure that display errors are either minimized or eradicated. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Cornerstone p1650 errors before installing any driver updates.
