    Do I need to install driver to use my laptop built-in wifi adaptor?
    How about the USB port and other hardware.

    Do I have to install the drivers given by the manufacturer or any drivers will do?

    Edit: Found my answer.
    You have to install driver for everything: wifi, webcam, bluetooth,...
    You must use the driver from the manufacturer website.

    The answer below question is false and he doesn't know anything about laptops.

    Most OS now install a generic driver for most of the hardware on modern systems which do the job fine in most cases.
    If you have any problems with a specific piece of hardware, you can go to their website and download the latest drivers.

    I've had to install drivers directly from the manufacturer's website before. The one that my PC installed didn't work, but after I got it directly there wasn't any issues.

    The OS doesn't come with driver pre installed.
    Please don't answer if you don't know anything about the subject.

    If I could neg rep, I would have neg repped you right now.
