The Dell 4100 is a mobile computing device which features a completely flat LCD screen that allows for crisper display of both images and textual contents. As a mobile computing device, there are a number of software drivers that must be installed in order to make the components functional. However, the main software driver required by the Dell 4100 is the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) driver. This piece of software is responsible for activating the basic feature sets of the computer system which is normally stored in a chip that is placed in the computer motherboard. The BIOS allows the computer system to make use of all built-in and attached devices as well as provide the framework for the Operating System. Installation of other productivity programs into the computer system initially require the BIOS to be functional.
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 importance of the BIOS software driver is emphasized by the fact that if the BIOS becomes corrupted, the entire computer system will become non-functional. Basically, the software driver for the BIOS allows the computer user to gain access to the configuration settings of the entire computer system. The control panel allows the computer user to verify what devices are connected and check on what are the available options for each device. The software driver also makes it possible for the user to define the boot up behavior of the machine by identifying the primary device that will serve as the start up hardware. The Dell 4100 makes use of the software driver to allocate the necessary system resources for its hosted components. The BIOS settings also provide the computer user with brief information about the computer system.
