The Crystal Vision 880 TCO99 is packaged with a device driver which allows the host computer system to correctly identify the device connected to the video output port of its graphics processing card. The use of display monitor device drivers was more widespread when operating systems did not have built-in generic drivers. These older operating system environments required the computer user to install all device drivers provided by their manufacturers once they are attached to the computer system. In newer operating system platforms however normally generic versions of device drivers are installed if one is available for the attached hardware component. This practice is more evident with display monitors than any other type of hardware component attached to a computer system. The operating system locates the best generic driver that will correspond to the display hardware and installs it sometimes without user intervention.
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
The generic device driver makes the display hardware component operational but possibly not totally functional. This means that there is a possibility that not all the feature sets built into the Crystal Vision 880 TCO99 can be activated by the generic display driver. For instance the generic display driver may not allow the computer user to set the maximum resolution that can be supported by the computer monitor. The display resolution essentially dictates the quality of the textual and graphical contents shown on the computer screen. The higher the resolution the better the quality that is displayed on the screen. Generic drivers are designed primarily to support the minimum screen resolution required by the host operating system to display its various items correctly. In most instances the operating system only requires a screen resolution of 800 by 600 pixels while most display monitors are capable of producing 1024 by 768 pixels or higher resolutions. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Crystal Vision 880 TCO99 errors before installing any driver updates.
