This device is designed by its manufacturer to allow the connection of various types of devices. As such it is deployed with a set of cables that will provide the computer user with the flexibility of dealing with different types of input devices. The Dell 2005FPW (Analog) is essentially an output device that is distributed with a pre-configured setting allowing it to receive analog VGA signals for the video adapter card of the host computer system. This type of interface is chosen by the manufacturer and supported by the corresponding device driver primarily because it remains as the most common type of interface for Personal Computer machines. In the same manner, the device driver supports backward compatibility functionality allowing the Dell 2005FPW (Analog) to be deployed even in older computer systems. The computer user however has the option of removing this interface from the panel if this is not the preferred connection type.
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 Digital Video Interface is slowly gaining ground in the graphics processing card market. This type of interface with the computer display monitor like the Dell 2005FPW (Analog) allows for the sending of video signals in their native digital format. The inclusion of this interface is seen as a preparation for the eventual phasing out of the VGA interface connection. For the analog mode operation of the Dell 2005FPW (Analog) it makes use of the conventional 15-pin D-sub connector. The quality of the signal achieved with this analog connection is considered as relatively lower in quality compared to the Digital Video Interface connection. The device driver aside from supporting these two basic types of connections to majority of computer systems also delivers the necessary interface to allow for the modification of the display attributes. The device driver also helps in detecting exactly what type of video interface is being used by the graphics processing card. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Dell 2005FPW (Analog) errors before installing any driver updates.
