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.

How can I enable sounds in Windows Server 2003?

My sound does not work. All drivers are installed and the Device Manager reports it is working properly. Why isn’t it working?

Windows Server 2003 Enterprise edition has the sound drivers disabled by default. Windows Server 2003 Standard edition does not, thus you CAN hear sounds on a standard edition installation.

You can however, also enable sounds on Windows Server 2003 Enterprise edition. To do so follow the next steps:

  1. Go to the Services applet in Administrative Tools (or click Start, then Run, and type “services.msc” (without quotes) and click OK).
  2. Find the “Windows Audio” service, right-click and select Properties, select “Automatic” instead of “Disabled” in the startup type box.

  1. Click Apply.
  2. Click Start.
  3. Click OK.

Alternatively, you can double-click the Sounds and Audio Devices applet in Control Panel, and select e Enable Windows Audio check-box.

Reboot in order for the sounds to begin working.
