Keyboard Driver for Toshiba® Satellite PC
What are the various ways to install keyboard driver in Toshiba satellite PC?
The communication bridge between the Operating System and the keyboard in the system is known as the keyboard driver. Windows can not communicate with the connected keyboard without a device driver. Driver programs are Operating System specific. That is, you can use the same device with PCs of different Operating System but the device drivers will be different for different Operating Systems like Windows XP, Vista, etc. Most hardware devices are shipped with driver CDs that contains drivers for commonly used Operating System. Device driver should be updated regularly, once they are installed. Windows detects and installs the compatible driver program automatically if Windows fail to install a driver. You can insert the driver CDs or download and install them from the web on the computer. You can go to the 'Device manager' to check what all device drivers are installed. Any of the device that does not have a proper device driver may be listed under 'Other devices' and will have a question mark. An exclamation mark on any device indicates that the particular device has a conflict and you have to update the driver to fix this issue.
