Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
What is a device driver and why do I always get recommendations to install updated drivers? Simply, a device driver is software that allows the device in question to communicate properly with the computer. If you buy a new printer or mouse and connect it to your computer, you may notice the device will not function properly. In my experience, the majority of technical issues with computing devices can be resolved by installing update drivers. Normally, device drivers come packed on a cd with your new equipment.
Below, you will find an extensive list of links for device drivers and support pages for common electronic devices.
