The NEC CRT Display D17B1 is a computer display monitor which makes use of a 15-pin D-sub connector cable to receive analog video signals from the video processing unit. This particular display hardware component makes use of a Cathode Ray Tube to be able to render to the computer user the processed information in a form that can be understood by a human. Essentially computer language is based on the Binary number system which is a series of zeroes and ones. These types of representations are not readily understood by individuals unless you have a working knowledge of the number system. In order to comprehend the data the device driver in conjunction with other components of the computer system display convert the series of numbers into human readable and understood form. This process holds true not only for textual contents but for images as well.
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 device driver provides every component involved in the display process with the necessary information on how the processed data should be formatted. This allows the associated computer display hardware to properly render information with minimal errors possible. Basically the NEC CRT Display D17B1 is only capable of receiving the processed information and has no capability to apply additional processing because it lacks the necessary chipsets to do so. Therefore if the video signal sent to it by the video processing unit is not properly formatted it may result in what is commonly referred to as garbage characters. These are actually useful bits of information which the hardware component has no idea on how to represent so it is displayed on the computer screen as an unreadable character. The device driver for the NEC CRT Display D17B1 also provides a communication link with the host operating system environment and all installed software applications. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and NEC CRT Display D17B1 errors before installing any driver updates.
