What Are Driver Errors?
Are you experiencing a driver erorr? If you are, there could be many reasons for this. Many times the problem lies within the driver itself, because over time drivers can become corrupt or outdated.
One example is if the driver is currently open with other processes running, then most likely the information will become garbled and your system will not comprehend what the driver is trying to say or do. Due to the fact the driver is already busy with these other processes it shouldn't be dealing with to begin with, the system becomes completely confused and the end result is usually a driver error message, or even worse, hardware failure.
Most of your hardware does have a timeout type feature which tells your hardware to shut down in the event that the driver prevents communication with the device. But how can we fix and prevent these timeouts and error messages?
