Computer Drivers

Today i'll be writing about System Drivers .
DRIVERS are needed by Computer Processors to communicate with external and internal Peripherals.
When a device is connected to the Computer without its driver installed, that device/Peripheral will not be able to function.
However some Peripherals are Plug and Play i.e, they can work without you seperately installing a driver.
To install the driver for a Peripheral, you can download from the internet. Otherwise, (for Windows Os) insert the Cd/Dvd rom containing the driver, Go to the Control panel of your Computer, click on the System icon and go to the Device Manager.
Click on the device and then click install driver.

This type of memory is mainly used by the computer to hold Data awaiting processing and Information awaiting delivery.
