Normally the device driver installation package of the S315 E is bundled with a number of utilities which are intended to support the operation of the hardware component. Upon execution the device driver makes the supported video adapter card both operational and functional. This role holds true for older operating system environments which do not have built-in generic device drivers. In newer operating system platforms this type of hardware component is usually made operational based on the requirements of the host machine. This however means that the supporting tools and utilities may not be activated accordingly. The S315 E may also not be able to achieve its maximum display resolution potential unless the correct device driver is installed into the host computer system. The host machine may also not be able to retrieve the accurate information pertaining to the installed hardware component.
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 allows the computer user to modify the display state of the supported hardware component. The display state commonly takes into consideration the resolution capability of the output device. By communicating with the device driver of the display monitor the computer user can modify the various display properties of the host computer system. By changing the default settings the computer user can customize the display subsystem based on his preferences. The device driver for the S315 E also allows the host computer system to implement hardware acceleration as well as support more graphically demanding software applications. The device driver makes it possible for the computer user to implement either a global or software specific change in the display attributes. Global settings affect primarily the entire state of the display subsystem while the software specific configuration is implied only while the program remains active. Once the program is terminated by the computer user the display settings revert to the last active configuration. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and S315 E errors before installing any driver updates.
