This 17 inch flat panel computer display monitor makes use of a Thin Film Transistor technology in order to properly render processed information to the computer user. It is equipped with a signal cable that plugs directly to the back panel of the Dell 1701FP (analog) display monitor. This signal cable will be used for the transmission of analog video signals that are generated by the graphics processing card from the processed information passed on the active software application. The device driver for the Dell 1701FP actually supports both analog and digital video inputs. This makes this computer display monitor a flexible alternative in providing display solutions to the host computer system. This hardware component is equipped with two video input ports at the back panel. One is for the analog input while the other is for the digital input. The first input port represents the analog signal communication interface port. The device driver is partly responsible for helping the supported hardware component to correctly determine the source of the video signal.
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
Like most computer display monitor hardware components, the Dell 1701FP (analog) is equipped with an onscreen display menu that allows the computer user to configure the display properties directly from the device. Part of the role of the device driver is to generate a software based representation for these onboard controls. The most common display properties that are configured by the computer user are the brightness and contrast attributes. These two display properties are responsible for dictating the level of light that will be generated by the supported hardware component. Depending on the preference of the computer user, the brightness level may be raised or lowered accordingly. The installation of the correct device driver provides the computer user with added flexibility in dealing with the different display properties. This is because the computer user can now configure the display attributes based on the currently active software application. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Dell 1701FP (analog) errors before installing any driver updates.
