When installed in newer operating system platforms with Plug and Play technology support, the CTX S701A,S701BA,S721A is usually assigned a generic display driver. This is because the generic Plug and Play display driver is designed by the operating system developer to activate majority of display devices making them operational. This however does not necessarily mean that the display hardware is already functional. In the context of computer hardware components the term functional usually refers of the activation of inherent feature sets based on the design of the equipment manufacturer. In this context the generic display driver may allow the CTX S701A,S701BA,S721A to render textual and graphical contents on the computer screen but may not allow for the correct configuration of the device. Essentially not all display monitors are created equal. Normally each computer monitor operates at its own frequency depending on the manufacturer's specifications.
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 device driver for the display hardware normally specifies the color modes that can be supported by the device. Colors are normally rendered based on different frequency signals that are interpreted by the display monitor. If the graphics card sends a signal which is beyond the frequency range of the CTX S701A,S701BA,S721A the data would either be displayed erroneously or not displayed at all. The device driver also defines the maximum resolution that can be configured for the supported hardware component. Normally an operating system only requires a display resolution of 800 by 600 dots per inch using 16-bit color depth. However majority of display monitors can go beyond these settings. The correct display driver will provide the computer user with the accurate maximum values and configure the settings appropriately. The display driver will also activate the power saving control feature of the CTX S701A,S701BA,S721A allowing the host machine to place the hardware component in standby if necessary. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CTX S701A,S701BA,S721A errors before installing any driver updates.
