Normally when computer hardware manufacturers design device drivers to support their products they attempt to target mainstream operating system environments. This is primarily because these operating system platforms are widely used allowing them to market their products to more computer users. The device driver for the Diamond Stealth III S540 like other device drivers is primarily an information and layout file that instructs the underlying operating system platform how to make use of the functionalities built into the supported hardware component. The device driver contains codes that dictates how graphical information will be handled by the host computer system to improve the quality of the display and make sure that information is correctly rendered to the computer user. When the appropriate device driver is installed into the host computer system the computer user has the flexibility of configuring the supported hardware component based on his preference or how it is intended to perform.
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 basic driver set for the Diamond Stealth III S540 is designed for the Microsoft Windows 98 operating system platform. This operating system environment unlike newer operating system platforms does not incorporate generic device drivers for commonly used hardware components. Thus the need for the appropriate device is required to ensure that it properly performs on the host computer system. When installed in the local hard drive of the host computer system the device driver establishes the necessary communication link with all the other elements of the display subsystem of the host machine. Essentially the graphics processing card plays the role of the mediator between the software application and the computer display monitor. Since only the video adapter card has a built-in processing unit it can handle the processed data passed on by the software application and format it accordingly to make sure that the computer display monitor can render it to the computer user correctly.
