A printer device driver is used by the manufacturer to provide support for its product in order to allow it to connect to a host computer system. Normally the device driver designed by the manufacturer is for specific operating system environments which are widely used at the moment of deployment. This process provides the hardware component like the Canon BJC-80 to be used in majority of computer systems. However, when an emerging operating system platform gains wide acceptance there is a possibility that the device driver will not be applicable for this new technology. The computer user in this case can check with the manufacturer for an update or resort to third party developers that provide support for emerging technologies. Failure to install the correct device driver would virtually render the supported hardware component useless. At the moment printing devices like the Canon BJC-80 are not covered by any generic device drivers.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The Canon BJC-80 is a type of output device which works in conjunction with the display subsystem of the host computer system. Basically the printer hardware component can be considered as an element of the display subsystem because it provides the computer user with a printed output of what is generally displayed on the computer monitor. In this context the device driver of the printing hardware component communicates with the other elements of the display subsystem. The device driver actually contains valuable information on the exact scope of operation that can be handled by the supported hardware component. In fact the device driver is an important element in the process of calibrating display or output devices of a specific computer system. The process of calibration will provide all output devices to maintain uniformity and conform to a specific color profile standard. The result is basically the same quality for all hardware components. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Canon BJC-80 errors before installing any driver updates.
