What Are Audio Drivers?
Audio drivers are a type of file that describes to a computer's operating system (OS) how the software layer should interact with the hardware layer and vice versa. A manufacturer's audio drivers can come either with the device on a form of physical media, such as a disc, or they can generally be downloaded online from the manufacturer's website. Most operating systems will be able to provide generic audio drivers to allow the audio device to work until those drivers can be properly installed. In a sense, an audio driver is what tells the computer how to operate the hardware responsible for audio output, whether this is an audio card, audio chip or external audio device.
Common Audio Driver Problems
Without the proper audio driver installed, a number of complications can arise. For example, a Windows 8 operating system will be forced to rely on native and generic audio drivers. This can result in slowdowns from memory leaks, errors in audio playback and even random system crashes or blue screen errors.
To help you get your sound working, you need to update your audio device drivers. If you want to avoid the risk of downloading the wrong driver, we recommend using DriverTurbo.
Updating Your Device Drivers is Vital
Outdated drivers harm system performance and make your computer vulnerable to errors and crashes. They often create application slowness, blue screens, error messages, hardware malfunctions and system crashes.
In order to keep your PC running at its peak performance, you need regular maintenance. Drivers change over time as they get updated by the manufacturer, which is why you should regularly update them with the latest version.
