Role of device drivers in the Sony VAIO JS Series systems
SONY VAIO JS Series is a series of desktops provided by Sony. Intel Pentium dual-core E5200 processor (2.5GHz) with 4GB of pre-installed system memory offers high performance to this series of desktop. This series is pre-installed with the Windows Vista Home Premium. The 500GB memory space helps you store a large amount of data. The speed offered by the hard drive is 7200rpm. The highly advanced audio system provides better sound quality. The software installed to this series of PCs are Microsoft Windows Live, OneCare Trial Version, and AOL 90-Day Risk Free Trial. The drivers are necessary for each and every device in the system. This actually works as an intermediate between user and the device. The different drivers available for this series are audio drivers, video drivers, chipset drivers, wireless network drivers, Ethernet card drivers and modem drivers. Audio drivers are used to control the sound devices. Chipset is a collection of different chips in the motherboard. So the chipset drivers are used to control these chipsets. Wireless network devices are used to control these wireless network devices. Ethernet card drivers are used to provide proper network connection. As you know, modems are used to modulate analog signals to transfer the digital information. The modem drivers control these modems to correctly do the transformation of signals.
Following are the role of drivers :
- Interact with the devices
- Solve the device issues
- Device performance improvement
Interact with the devices
Operating system uses the drivers to interact with the device. You can’t give request to any of the devices directly. The user request is to be converted in to the device understandable format. This translation job is actually done by the drivers. So without these drivers, you can’t play any of the devices.
Solve the device issues
Drivers are also useful to troubleshoot the devices. If any problems occur in the system, then these drivers help you to properly identify the device and to correct them. Most of the times you only need to replace these drivers to solve the computer issues. There is no need of replacement of devices.
Device performance improvement
By controlling the devices properly, drivers can improve the performance of devices. Thus the role of drivers in the improvement of system performance is high. No other parts other than these drivers influence on the system performance. If you are using the correct device drivers and they are working properly you don’t need to worry about the system performance.
