The Gateway VX930 is a computer display monitor designed for desktop computer systems. It is a conventional Cathode Ray Tube type computer screen that accepts analog signals from the graphics processing card. The device driver for this particular hardware component serves as both an information and a layout file during the installation process. It provides the underlying operating system with the necessary information to correctly identify the type of device, its manufacturer, and driver version. These data are then placed by the operating system into a centralized registry database associated with the monitor for ready and easy access of requesting software applications. The device driver is likewise partially responsible for identifying to the host computer system the built-in feature sets designed into the display hardware by its manufacturer. In this context the device driver is also partially responsible for activating these built-in feature sets.
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
Essentially the functionality of any display monitor hardware like the Gateway VX930 depends to a certain extent on the capability of the supporting graphics card. Since a display hardware component does not possess any type of processing engine it is merely limited to the type of data that the video adapter card passes to it for rendering. This means that even if the display hardware is capable of implementing resolution as high as 1280 by 1024 dots per inch or beyond the graphics card still has a say on the final resolution that can be used by the display monitor. In case the resolution is beyond the capability of the graphics processing card, the maximum resolution that can be used is based on what the video adapter and the display monitor can support. Basically the native resolution defined by the manufacturer for the display hardware component is based on the prevailing capabilities of video adapter cards in the market.
