The Dell 800M is a 15 inch computer display monitor that makes use of the Cathode Ray Tube technology in order to properly render images to the computer user. It is part of the multimedia product series of monitors that is capable of accepting analog video signals from the graphics processing card of the host computer system. The device driver supports the 0.7 Vpp level which turns positive at 75 Ohms. This hardware component also implements a separate synchronization level for TTL as well as scanning frequencies that range from 30 to 70 kHz and 50 to 120 Hz for horizontal and vertical scans respectively. The 15 inch display screen features a 13.8 viewable area where the rendered image is placed. Based on the manufacturer's specifications, the Dell 800M is capable of implementing a dot pitch equivalent to 0.28 mm which is relatively acceptable for computer display monitors. This means that the approximate distance between two same colored dots rendered on the computer screen does not exceed this value.
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
Typical with most Cathode Ray Tube based computer display monitors, the Dell 800M also makes use of a conventional 15-pin D-sub connector for its video cable. This plugs directly to the output port of the graphics processing card with the other end directly connected to the input port of the computer display monitor. The video capable accepts analog video signals generated by the video adapter card. In this context the stored information in the host computer system (which is primarily digital) is subjected to a digital to analog conversion process. The device driver of the Dell 800M communicates with that of the graphics processing card in order to provide an accurate information on how the converted information should be formatted to be correctly rendered to the computer user. The device driver also communicates with the underlying operating system environment to allow the installed software applications adequate access to the functionalities of the supported hardware component. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Dell 800M errors before installing any driver updates.
