The Dell 1707FP(Digital) is a type of LCD display monitor that has a display size of 17 inches when measured diagonally. The installation of the software driver for the Dell 1707FP(Digital) allows the computer user to maximize the display resolution to 1280 by 1024 pixels. This resolution is actually the representation of the number of horizontal and vertical pixels. The resolution used by LCD displays like the Dell 1707FP(Digital) is only the ones they are designed for. This is in contrast to the CRT display monitors which can use settings other than their native resolution. The difference lies on the structure of the Dell 1707FP(Digital) which has a fixed number of horizontal and vertical dots. The change in resolution requires the presence of the driver to assist in the scaling of the display to fill the display area.

Another important feature that is supported by the software driver for the Dell 1707FP(Digital) is the response time of the device. The response time within the context of the Dell 1707FP(Digital) refers to the amount of time that it takes for the device to alter colors. The measurement begins from the change to another color and then back to its previous color state. The software driver makes it possible for some programs to take advantage of this functionality which is useful especially for computer gaming and animation among others. The result is the elimination or minimizing of what is normally referred to as ghosting effect when an image on the screen is moved from one position to another. The ghosting effect means that there is a trail left from the previous position which remains slightly visible on the screen's background.
