The display monitor Philips 7CM329 makes use of a driver in order to install into the host computer system an information file which will update the hardware database. This hardware database is loaded on system boot up and allows the operating system to correctly identify all attached devices to the computer system. The hardware database is likewise used by the software applications in order to determine what devices are available for use and the corresponding settings that have been configured for each device. In the case of the Philips 7CM329, programs can determine the resolution (in terms of pixels) as well as the corresponding refresh rate which partly determines the quality of the display and the size of the display area used by the computer user. The software provides the computer user with an interface to customize the display properties.
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 role of the software driver for the Philips 7CM329 is that it determines the appropriate color profile that can be used with the display device. The color profile based on the International Color Consortium (ICC) standard helps to determine how the display device can accurately represent color shades. Essentially, every display monitor handles the representation of colors differently as they are shown on the user's screen. This feature is extremely important in calibrating the display in relation to how the computer user would like the printout and the onscreen display to match. Calibration of display monitors is usually done in the context of image editing or video editing applications. The Philips 7CM329 software driver also provides the computer system with the necessary capabilities and limitations of the device for the reference of all software applications installed in the machine.
