A device driver is a program that monitors and controls the dealings between a specific hardware and the operating system of the computer. Some drivers for the hardware like the keyboard are built in within the operating system but most operating systems require specific drivers to connect the keyboard and other hardware like mouse, disk drive, printer, camera etc. to your computer. The computer just cannot function without the help of the drivers.
