Windows 7 RC
My processor is Intel Core 2 Duo 7500
Perfmon /report tells me I need to install,”Coprocessor”
What’s a Coprocessor?
In Device Manager, under “other devices” Coprocessor
Has a yellow box.
I tried “update driver” it could not find it on the internet,
Or in C:\ windows

Use the SMU (chipset) drivers for the coprocessor from your motherboard manufacturers site, using Vista 64 or 32 bit depending what version of win7 you have installed.

i have never heard of a coprocessor,
what is it? and what does it do?

Fruitbats correct, this happened to me with clean Vista install.
It may not be called what you expect, think mine was called "NVidia chipset driver"

i reinstalled the motherboard drivers from the installation CD,now "other Devices" in
device manager has gone,and perfmon /report
nolonger asks me to insatall coprocessor.
i would still like to know what it is,
and what it does
