The Dell VS17X is a 17 cathode ray tube (CRT) monitor display device that can be connected to the video port of the host PC through a 15-pin D-sub connector cable. This type of computer monitor is capable of receiving analog signals produced by the graphics processing card or the onboard video adapter of the host PC. In newer operating system platforms, this computer monitor may be detected as generic Plug and Play device primarily because of the generic device drivers that are incorporated into the underlying OS. The utilization of the generic driver is instantly done by the OS environment to immediately make the connected hardware component functional. This however does not automatically translate to the activation of all the features that are built into the supported device by its manufacturer. To make certain that all features become available to the user, the proper driver should be installed in the host machine.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
