Gateway® E series drivers

What are the various sources to access compatible drivers for the Gateway E series?

A system works well with the coordinated effort of the software and the hardware in the system. The hardware part in the system is the devices and the software part is the drivers. Every hardware device in the system needs an interface to communicate with the system and this interface is known as drivers. Drivers are actually the interface between the user and the hardware device in the system. The driver contains all the essential details of a device that let you communicate with the devices properly. The computer program sends messages from you to the device driver and the driver transfers that message to the appropriate device. Thus, it acts as the intermediary between you and the device. These drivers also help you keep up the performance of the system. If you select or install improper devices, they might damage the system and result in system crash. The recent and compatible drivers for the Gateway E series systems can be downloaded from the manufacturer's or the Gateway website. It is the simplest and safest way to access the updated and compatible driver for your system. Some types of driver update software are there to help you download the compatible drivers for your system. This software could recognize the compatible driver from the website itself.

For the following functions, drivers are necessary in your Gateway E series system:

  • Recognition of hardware device

  • Enables device communication

  • Device troubleshooting


Recognition of hardware


For recognizing the hardware device in the system, the system needs the associated driver. The Operating System finds details from the driver and thus it only could identify the presence of that device in the system. The device would be detected by the Operating System only after the respective driver is installed.

Enables device communication


This is another important need of drivers in the Gateway E series systems. Drivers are necessary to initiate and maintain proper communication between the device and the user. You should install Operating System and hardware compatible drivers to maintain optimum communication and interaction. The Operating System could access details from these drivers after proper installation of the device drivers in the system. Then only the underlying Operating System could support the working of that hardware device.
Device troubleshooting

It is also one of the main functionalities of the device drivers in the Gateway E series system. Since all the details related to the hardware device in the system are kept in the drivers in the system, you could find the details related to the each of the devices if any problems occur with them.
