Windows 7: Unidentified device - coprocessor?

Unidentified device - coprocessor?

After installing W7 64 bit, I've noticed in my device manager that there's a device with a yellow question mark called a "Coprocessor" although my regular processor has been recognized fine. When I try to update the driver on it, I get a message saying that there weren't any found. I don't even quite know what the hardware is that it's refering to.

Here's what you need to do, list everything in your computer, and also right click on the unknown device in the Device Manager, go to the details tab, and list all the information under Hardware Ids.

I had that happen to me. Make sure you've installed all the drivers from your motherboard disk. I did and that disappeared from the Device Manager. Good luck!

The only problem when describing the hardware is that there is not information on it. All it says is that it's an unknown device. I'll try updating the mobo when I get home. Also, I use a nVidia 9800 GTX+ graphics card and during my research I saw something about the W7 drivers causing this problem, can anyone confirm that?

Chipset drivers from the manufacturer should take care of it.
