The GoldStar 1423 Plus VGA is a type of display monitor that is designed to work with graphics processing cards that support conventional 15-pin D-sub connectors. A display monitor is essentially the main output device for computer systems. The device driver for this particular hardware component serves as an information file which provides the necessary data to help the host computer system identify the attached device. This particular role is important especially for older operating systems which are not equipped with generic display drivers. Basically when connected to older operating systems the computer user may fail to correctly configure the display hardware component to provide an accurate rendering of images. At most the display settings may be set to the minimum that can be identified by the host operating system environment which at times may be monochrome with 4-bit color depths.
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
By using the correct device driver, the computer user has the capability of defining the correct values for the different attributes of the display hardware component. This still holds true for newer operating system platforms that have built-in generic display drivers. The main difference is that in newer operating system environments the display hardware component is set to the minimum value that will allow the operating system to function correctly. This however will fail to activate any built-in feature sets of the GoldStar 1423 Plus VGA device. Generally display drivers are responsible for providing the native resolution that can be handled by the supported hardware component. The native resolution actually refers to the values that can be set for the display hardware component which will yield optimum quality for the computer monitor. The device driver normally works in conjunction with the device driver of the graphics processing card which is responsible for passing processed data to the display hardware. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and GoldStar 1423 Plus VGA errors before installing any driver updates.
