The installation of the HP D2800A Ultra VGA 1600 21-inch Display driver is intended to supplement the setup facility of the underlying operating system platform. The driver application allows the operating system to correctly identify the manufacturer and model number of the attached device and validate its presence in the monitor information database. In case that no such information exists, the monitor information database is updated by appending the data contained in the device driver. Under the Microsoft Windows Operating System platform, this can be validated under the Device Manager Service where instead of generic monitor is identified, HP monitor is displayed. Aside from the correct monitor model and type, the driver also provides information on the refresh rates and resolution capabilities of the equipment. The supported language of the monitor's control panel can also be provided by the driver.
