The device driver of the HP 915(DOT4USB) is used to support the printing and other functionalities built into the hardware component by its manufacturer. Essentially the device driver supports the execution of the DOT4 protocol which is commonly associated with multifunctional devices. This particulate protocol allows for the execution of simultaneous transmission of send and receives data packets using a single communication channel over a physical layer provided by the hardware component's connection to the host computer system. In this context the device driver for the HP 915(DOT4USB) also stores various data that relates to multiple interface descriptions. Essentially the support for multiple functionalities requires all the feature sets to maintain constant communication layers. It allows for example a scanning process to directly output images to the printing hardware component. Similarly it allows the scanning component to support the copying feature that allows the hardware component to function as a photocopy machine.
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 presence of these types of multifunctional peripherals in a host computer system more often than not makes use of the Universal Serial Bus interface port. It allows the HP 915(DOT4USB) to take advantage of the relatively faster data transmission rates achieved by the communication port. By using the correct device driver for the supported hardware component the occurrence of spooler failure errors can be eliminated. Generally spooler errors can happen when there is a failure in the connection infrastructure between the hardware component and the host communication interface port of the machine. According to some computer experts the DOT4 protocol supported by the device driver is also responsible for the creation of a virtual communication port in the host computer system. This virtual communication port is created and activated with the help of the device driver in coordination with the Plug and Play interface support of the underlying operating system environment. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and HP 915(DOT4USB) errors before installing any driver updates.
