Why is it important to install the device driver to your computer?

The main purpose of device drivers is to provide abstraction by acting as a translator between a hardware device and the applications or operating systems that use it. Programmers can write higher-level application code independently of whatever specific hardware the end-user is using.

What is a driver file?

Driver Files are pieces of code that help your computer interact with different hardware devices and peripherals attached (internally or externally) to your computer. Every device and peripheral has its own driver files, which tell the PC exactly how to communicate with the device and make use of it.

What is a network Class 9?

A group of autonomous computers and associated devices connected together by communication channels like cables or telephone lines etc. is called a network. In a network, the computers work as stand alone machines but can communicate with other computers on the network as and when required.

What is Kernel Class 9?

Kernel is a program that manages I/O requests and translate them into data processing instructions for CPU and other components. It is a part of the OS that loads first and it remains in the main memory.

What are different types of kernel?

Types of Kernel :

  • Monolithic Kernel – It is one of types of kernel where all operating system services operate in kernel space.
  • Micro Kernel – It is kernel types which has minimalist approach.
  • Hybrid Kernel – It is the combination of both monolithic kernel and mircrokernel.
  • Exo Kernel –
  • Nano Kernel –

What is kernel in simple words?

A kernel is the foundational layer of an operating system (OS). It functions at a basic level, communicating with hardware and managing resources, such as RAM and the CPU. Since a kernel handles many fundamental processes, it must be loaded at the beginning of the boot sequence when a computer starts up.
