Users who spend long hours in front of the computer monitor usually experience eye strains and sometimes even headaches. According to some computer experts, these are results of flickers that are usually related with Cathode Ray Tube based display monitors. The flickers are believed to be the result of either a very low or too high refresh rate setting. For the Disney MD42514PFT01, it is able to implement a 70kHz refresh rate in association with the proper display resolution. In computing systems, the refresh rate is almost always discussed in relation with the resolution of the display monitor. By utilizing the proper device driver with the computer monitor, the host operating system will be capable of correctly reflecting to the user the possible refresh rates that are supported by the display subsystem elements.
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
However, there is a common misconception that the refresh rate property applies directly to the display monitor device. Nevertheless, the refresh rate attribute actually refers to the amount of times the graphics processing card tries to redraw the contents of the entire computer screen. This property is generally calculated in accord with the horizontal scan rate against the number of horizontal lines on the monitor device. The value is then multiplied by a constant value of 1.05 which reflects the approximate time to scan the entire screen. By identifying these values, the user can identify the appropriate refresh rate based on the prevailing display resolution. This complex process is simplified by the device driver by providing the user with the appropriate values from a control panel applet. Refresh rates do not directly apply to LCD monitor devices since the mechanisms utilized for imaging and illumination are separate. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Disney MD42514PFT01 errors before installing any driver updates.
