Types of Printer Drivers

PCL5e Driver: Technically, the PCL5e has been superseded by PCL6 — however, we make this driver available because the layout of some documents may be altered if they are originally created for a PCL5 compliant printer, but are printed using PCL6.

PCL6 Driver – PCL6 is a general purpose text / graphics driver that’s ideal for spreadsheets, word processing and database printouts. It features superior graphics handling that’s better than the PCL5e driver, although its speed is typically slower.

PS3 Driver: The Adobe® Postscript Driver is generally superior to the others, but it requires a Postscript compatible printer and can be a little more complex to install.

IPDL-C Driver: This is a color printer driver designed specifically for optimal performance under Wi

What is the ACPI\MSFT0101 Device?

The Device

The device is a chipset component found on Intel Skylake and newer motherboards. It is part of Intel Platform Trust Technology (PTT) as can be used to provide TPM 2.0 functionality. The device can therefore be used to provide credential storage and key management, useful if you are deploying technologies such as Bitlocker.

Drivers and Software

This device is not installed by using the Intel Chipset Driver software or Intel Management Interface (MEI). The device is automatically supported in Windows 8 and Windows 10. The BIOS must be running in UEFI mode.

If you are using Windows 7 x64, or Windows Server 2008 R2, a Hotfix is available to add support for TPM 2.0 functionality. This will provide the driver support required. Again, the system must be running in UEFI mode.

Reminder: The ACPI\MSFT0101 device – Intel Platform Trust Technology – is not supported under Windows 7 x86.

Sorry , we could not find a driver matching with your operating system. Please contact us for further support.

Why do i receive the error below?

“Sorry , we could not find a driver matching with your operating system. Please contact us for further support”

It’s because there is no driver matching with your operating system. Now, there are some device only working in some specific operating system only. The manufacturers don’t make the driver for every operating system. For example, With the popular of windows 64 bit, they only have driver for 64 bits version only. If you install a 32 bit in this situation, you will not be able to use that device because there is no driver. In some other cases, for old equipments, the manufacturer only make the driver for 32bit version, they don’t continue to support 64bit version.

So if you are really need to use that device, the only thing you can do is to install the correct operating system.

Again, DriverIdentifier don’t write driver, we just collect drivers around the world and brought them to you.

Do we write drivers?

No, we don’t. We just collect drivers from the hardware company and manufacturers.

Hardware company will provide the drivers to the manufacturers. After sometimes when the normal support for that hardware has ended, the hardware company will stop providing driver update for that hardware. Some manufacturers still maintain the driver update for their hardware. For example, I had an old Pentium D computer with an Intel brand motherboard that I installed 7 on (several years ago). Intel did not make a driver available for the MEI for that chipset for Windows 7 officially. However, I did find another manufacturer did (I think it was Gateway computers). I was able to use that driver.

In this case, if you’re finding XP drivers for your stuff that your manufacturer doesn’t have available for download, the drivers are probably from another manufacturer.

As one hardware can be distributed by manufacturers, they might be compatible with each other. DriverIdentifier analyze the drivers it collect from the manufacturer websites, then it will compare your driver with its database. If DriverIdentifier see a compatible, it will show you the link to download.

That makes DriverIdentifier a big difference with other Driver Update software. We do not alter the drivers, we show you the option to download the right drivers from the manufacturer.
