A display monitor in the framework of a computer system always works in conjunction with the installed graphics processing card. In this context one of the main responsibilities of the device driver is to coordinate its actions with that of the video adapter card. The graphics card is essentially responsible for the processing of all graphical data handled by the host computer system. In fact graphic cards are intended to lessen the burden on the main processor. So a display monitor like the CV174 is used to render the processed data to the computer user. This routine is made possible in conjunction with the display protocols of the host computer system. The device driver provides the graphics card with the necessary details it needs to know how to format instructions that will be sent to the computer monitor. The CV174 in turn will be able to completely understand any video signals sent via its 15-pin D-sub connection.
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 the same manner the device driver also provides the underlying operating system environment with the necessary details on how to correctly identify the attached hardware. The device driver which also serves as the layout information file for the hardware component setup gives the make, type, and manufacturer of the hardware component. These information is placed into a database file which is accessible to any software application installed in the computer system. The data will also help the host machine understand how to control the behavior of the hardware component. For display monitors like the CV174 some basic attributes include brightness, contrast, gamma, resolution, refresh rate, and color depth among others. Some of these attributes have their corresponding control buttons on the panel of the display hardware. The device driver makes it possible for the computer user to modify them from a software interface. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CV174 errors before installing any driver updates.
