Windows 7: Co-processor Driver

Co-processor Driver

Ok. So I know my way around computers and the other threads on this don't seem to help me.

I am running a computer that I bought the parts off of tiger direct. The processors are AMD and the motherboard is MSI. When I go to either of these sites, the co-processor error doesn't correct itself. Ive already been to NVIDIA and and downloaded all available drivers, but it all seems in vain.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to SF, Tylers.

First, please do the following:


In the line at the top of you will see UserCP.
That is an abbreviation for User Control Panel.
Click on UserCP.
In the left-hand column, under Your Profile you will see Edit System Spec.
Click on Edit System Spec
You can copy and paste from the output of Speccy, Speccy - System Information - Free Download to fill out much of the info. Be sure to use the Other Info section of your System Specs for such info as your optical drive, your wireless adapter, your speakers, etc.

Second, could you provide a screen capture, or detailed error message?

Check your Device Manager for yellow exclamation mark.

You are probably running on the generic Chipset driver provided by Windows 7 installation.

If so, go to the MSI website and navigate to the drivers for your motherboard, find the "Chipset Driver", and install it.

If you've done this already you need to reassess the procedure to uninstall/update the drivers. The Co-Processor issue is almost always corrected by installing the correct Chipset Drivers.
