What are device drivers?
Your PC is made up of several hardware components or devices. The most common devices include:
All these devices have their respective drivers, which is basically a program that operates and has 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 the speakers understand.
Without device drivers, your PC would not know how to deal with devices attached to it. Speakers would not function. You won’t get your printers to print anything. Video devices would not work.
Drivers are specific to each device. And like other software programs, they need regular good management 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 gains your PC a number of benefits, including ensuring that you get your PC and all its devices to perform on 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 Incorrect, outdated or missing drivers are the primary cause of poor PC performance.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 on their fullest potential. You could still get your printer to print your documents but its best features could be unusable because of driver problems. You are therefore not getting the full worth of your investment in hardware with invalid or obsolete drivers.
Hardware manufacturers regularly release updates to fix known or recently discovered bugs in device drivers.
But updating all your drivers is tricky business. The immediate concerns for the user are what to update and when. This is 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.
