In major operating system platforms, the use of keyboard drivers is often overlooked. This is because most of these environments have their own default generic keyboard drivers that are automatically invoked when the input device is connected to the system. However, there are some important issues that need to be considered why the correct keyboard driver must be used for the appropriate input device. For one, the operating system mostly determines the keyboard layout and type based on how the operating system is configured during the installation process. This means that if the operating system uses English and defines the location as somewhere in the United States, the computer system automatically assumes that all attached devices will follow configurations for this language and location. In some instances this may cause some problems for hardware components that do not adhere to this generalization.
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 software for the ORTEK Keyboard will allow for the correct identification not only of the manufacturer, model, and type of keyboard that is attached to the computer system but also the layout it uses and the language it uses. When the correct driver is installed, dead keys (those which cannot be interpreted by the operating system) are eliminated. The driver also makes sure that the correct key corresponds to the correct character that is needed by the computer users. For multimedia ORTEK Keyboard products, the software makes sure that all special keys that are on the input device function properly. This means that if you press the MAIL key, the default electronic mailing application in the system must be launched. The driver also provides some useful configuration settings via user interface that controls the behavior of the ORTEK Keyboard. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ORTEK Keyboard errors before installing any driver updates.
