This machine comes with Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 / 2.0 GHz processor, 2.0 GB / 4.0 GB (max) RAM< 200 GB hard disk, 15.4 in TFT active matrix screen, PCI Express - NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics card and many other high performance internal components. Any operating system can be installed on your Acer Aspire 5920 and used without any problems. However, along with the operating system, some drivers may also have to be installed. Drivers are the link between the hardware components within your Acer Aspire 5920 Laptop and the operating system installed on the system. Drivers come as self extracting files that can be easily installed. Without drivers, the hardware components within the system may not be able to understand the commands given by the user/ operating system and the OS may also be unable to understand what is the result being produced by the hardware components. Although operating systems come with some basic drivers, these may not be enough for the high performance components in Acer Aspire 5920.
- Video drivers
- Audio drivers
- External device drivers
Video cards can be best described as components essential for the proper multimedia handling of the system. Video cards come as standard components in your Acer Aspire 5920 and they require video drivers. Video drivers are absolutely essential for tasks such as playing complex video formats on the system, playing video files on monitors other than the default screen and more. Video drivers allow Acer Aspire 5920 users to play any new complex video files on the system without any problems.
Audio drivers are essential for the normal functioning of sound in the system. Without sound, the system may not be able to play any multimedia files or work on any application with sound. Sound drivers are also essential for Acer Aspire 5920 users to get audible warnings regarding the working of the system such as low battery or system errors.
Very large numbers of external devices can also be installed and used on your Acer Aspire 5920. These include printers and webcams. Although the operating system installed on your Acer Aspire 5920 may recognize external devices, they may also require separate drivers to function. Without printer drivers, the printer connected to your system may not understand what pages to print and when to do it.
