What are device drivers?

Your PC is made up of several hardware components or devices. The most common devices include:

Device Drivers

All these devices have their respective drivers, which are essentially programs that operate and have control over the device. A driver communicates with a particular device, linking it with the operating system.

For example, when you increase or decrease the volume of your PC speakers, the driver translates the command into a code that the speakers understand.

Without device drivers, your PC would not know how to deal with devices attached to it. Speakers would not function. Your printers would not be able to print anything. Video devices would not work.

Drivers are specific to each device. And like other software programs, they need regular and excellent management in order for your PC devices to not only function, but to function well.

What is DriverAssist?

Why do you need to manage your PC drivers?

Managing your device drivers provides your PC with a number of benefits, including ensuring that you enable your PC and all its devices to perform to their maximum capabilities. Incorrect, outdated or missing drivers are the primary cause of poor PC performance.

Some devices cease to function, or do not function at all, with invalid drivers. Other devices might work but only on ‘generic’ mode, which means that they do not work to their fullest potential. You could still use your printer to print your documents, but its best features could be unusable due to driver problems. Therefore with invalid or obsolete drivers, you are not getting the best out of your hardware, or the full worth of your investment.

Hardware manufacturers regularly release updates to fix known or recently discovered bugs in device drivers – but updating all your drivers is a tricky business. The immediate concerns for users are what to update and when. This can be time consuming even for the most technically competent and computer-savvy user.

The experts at SafeBytes understand this situation very well. That is why we created DriverAssist to make managing device drivers easier for all PC users.
