The M1788-1 is a type of Cathode Ray Tube computer monitor which is capable of receiving analog signals sent by the graphics processing card. These types of display monitors operate in the same manner as conventional television sets but without the tuner. Essentially this type of hardware component is strictly a receiver of information which it renders directly to the computer user. It does not contain any processing chipset that will allow it to generate its own data from raw inputs. In this context one of the most crucial roles of the device driver is to be able to effectively communicate with the device drivers of the other hardware components involved in the display process. Likewise it should establish a clear connection with any existing operating system protocols that may affect the reception of the video signals. Communication links are generated by the device driver by providing the necessary information which will help the other hardware components to identify how commands or instructions should be structured when sent to the M1788-1 device.
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
Another vital role of the device driver is that it is partly responsible for providing the necessary user interface that will allow for the modification of its default settings. The device driver via its link with the operating system environment provides a software based interface which may correspond to the onboard controls present on the display monitor. These values are used to help the computer user establish the best display quality possible based on the capability of the graphics adapter and the supported computer monitor. By customizing the display settings the computer user personalizes his computing experience making it more enjoyable. The device driver also makes sure that the installed software applications can correctly identify the type of hardware component attached to the host computer system. This is normally done by storing data into the central registry database of the operating system. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and M1788-1 errors before installing any driver updates.
