Mismatched drivers , outdated drivers are the main reasons for system slow down and even system crashes. Your computers hardware Drivers are very critical component, but knowing when and how to update them is one of those computer things which many average computer users don’t know.
So What is a driver?
System operating system Windows, doesn’t know everything about every piece of hardware that is installed on a system, just for an example you may have a network card installed, windows will detect and know that it’s a network card but won’t know how to make each and every possible network card to work. That’s the job done by the hardware driver software or simply called as “Drivers”
A driver is a software that allows your computer to communicate with hardware or devices. Without drivers, the hardware you connect to your computer—for example, a video card or a webcam—will not work properly. Drivers translates the Windowsinstructions in to specific commands that the hardware can understand and do what it is meant to do. So each different hardware attached to your PC needs this driver to do the translation to properly communicate with the operating system’s command.
In most cases, drivers come with Windows when you install windows, so when you add a new hardware, windows detects it and just automatically installs the appropriate drivers, that’s what we call it as “Plug and Play”. But with so many hardware components available today, its not possible to have all those drivers included with windows, that’s the reason why hardware manufacturer’s includes the driver CD/DVD with your hardware. On the same line again these hardwaremanufacturer releases updated versions of the drivers for the their hardware,from time to time, so as to make it perform better and also for different versions of windows. The problem here is how to know when a driver gets updated, or which hardware component of your system needs to be checked for a driver update. It’s a daunting task considering the fact that there are so many components inside a PC and each of these is controlled by its own driver.
