The device driver for the Gateway CrystalScan 17 provides the necessary details to the underlying operating system platform to allow it to correctly identify the type of hardware, provider, and driver version that is hosted on the machine. This display hardware component connects directly to the graphics card using a 15-pin d-sub connector which means that it receives analog signals from the video adapter. The device driver for the supported hardware component functions as both a layout and information file which is intended to make it operational and functional. The device driver is responsible for providing sets of predefined monitor configuration files which are all tailor fitted to take advantage of the built-in feature sets of the Gateway CrystalScan 17 hardware component.
