This hardware component is a Liquid Crystal Display monitor that makes use of a Thin Film Transistor technology to provide the computer user with a 22-inch wide screen monitor access. The computer monitor currently remains the main display component which allows the machine to render information to the computer user. The device driver allows the supported hardware component to effectively communicate with the corresponding device driver of the graphics processing card. This allows the video adapter to format the instruction sets into an acceptable structure that can be interpreted by the receiving display monitor. Essentially the display monitor and the graphics processing card must work together in order to generate acceptable displays and minimize the instances of display related errors. Since the HP v220 Wide LCD Monitor does not contain its own processing chip it relies mostly on the data feed coming from the video adapter card. In this context the display quality is partially controlled by the video adapter.
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
The manufacturing process for display monitors provide the device manufacturers with the flexibility of dictating various properties and feature sets that will be included in the design. For the HP v220 Wide LCD Monitor it is manufactured to have a factory set resolution of 1680 by 1050 dots per inch. Whether or not this resolution will and can be used would depend on a number of factors. The primary factor to determine this would be the capability of the graphics processing card to support the considerably high resolution rate. Another determining factor would be the presence of the correct device driver. Essentially for newer operating system environments generic device drivers are used to make attached hardware components operational based on the requirements of the platform. This means that the native resolution may not be reached because the underlying operating system does not have the information on what the manufacturer has specified as its native resolution. The device driver also allows the supported hardware component to receive analog video signals from the video adapter. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and HP v220 Wide LCD Monitor errors before installing any driver updates.
