Need of installing drivers
Every device, irrespective of its version, requires its commands to be in a hardware-specific specialized manner. However, most applications issue commands to the devices as high-level device-generic commands like 'PRINTLN'. Device drivers are, thus, required to break down these high-level commands into a series of low-level device specific commands. Thus, the device drivers are needed to synchronize the activity of the device with the applications that require them.
Benefits of installing drivers

As the drivers act as an interface as well as translator between your system hardware and the Operating System, it helps in ensuring that all the needs of your specific hardware component as well the Operating System is met and thus, ensures their coordinated working. Drivers also provide security to your system as they are capable of running in the kernel-mode. They, thus, protect your system from applications that run in the user-mode.
