A driver is needed so that a hardware component can interact with an installed software on a computer. Without an audio driver, for instance, a computer won’t be able to produce sound. Microsoft has provided drivers in Windows by default so that every hardware connected to a Windows PC can function properly. However, they are just generic drivers, unlike Realtek HD Audio Drivers.
