    Hi guys,
    I installed Windows 7 Beta Build 7000 (from official windows site, but i got a windows key from a friend of mine ^^) a couple of months ago, its all working fine.
    I recently installed the Windows 7 drivers available at Nvidia.com for my Nvidia 9500GT and got a noticable FPS boost.
    Today when I was just browsing some stuff i noticed that I had 2 driver errors:

    USB Camera <-- old thing, bought it years ago, so screw that xD
    Coprocessor <-- No further information given o_O

    so I tried to use the troubleshoot thing by rightclicking on my computer (with the yellow sign next to it :( ) and clicked Troubleshoot. It tried to reinstall the coprocessors drivers, but couldn't find earlier drivers so it failed.

    so now is my question: What the hell is my coprocessor? :confused: Could it be the onboard Nvidia geforce 7050? I personally doubt it becouse when installing Windows 7 it showed it had downloaded the WMD drivers from windows update for the 7050 and the 9500...
    more system specs in my profile ;]

    Any usefull help is appreciated ^^

    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 agree with ickymay. Mobo drivers are what you need. I had the same thing on my HP Tablet when I install Win 7 64 bit

    Oh yes, i have the 64 bit version to.

    Why can't I install the Windows 7 driver on the mobo chipset? :confused:
    GeForce Release 181

    So you guys say that I should install this driver?
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_vista64_15.26.html
    Do I have to run the file in Compability mode? (Seen that on another site :rolleyes:)

    And why do I even need to install any drivers for that ****** worthless crappy onboard thing? I thought it isn't for anything because I choose the PCI-e option instead of Onboard in boot menu. Or is this because I choose to Share memory (or something like that)? :confused:

    By the way, thank you for the quick reply :D

    Nilsb7/PACMAN

    Edit: Ok, ehm I started the Vista64 driver for my onboard card(not in compability mode or whatsoever) and now it asks what I wan't it to install.
    Options:
    1. NVIDIA-beeldschermstuurprogramma | NVIDIA-graphicdrivers <-- The ones I've been looking for? : D

    2. NVIDIA-SMU stuurprogramma | NVIDIA-SMU drivers <-- what is an SMU? Wikipedia says that an SMU is: "
    System management unit a subsystem in Apple computers replacing the older Power Management Unit." But I doubt that that is true because I definitly do NOT have an Apple o_O

    3. NVIDIA-Away Mode Driver | NVIDIA-Away Mode Driver <-- dunno where that is for either o_O

    Wich options should I choose to install?

    Edit2: Oh **** The answer to what's an SMU is in your reply *slams head against wall*
    I'm now installing all of it, so I checked all three options

    Okey, I just installed it and let my PC restart (the setup asked for it) but the problem apparently still isn't solved

    skip that driver and try the GeForce Release 181 that you found ;)

    trick with any beta is keep trying drivers until you get one that works :)

    well I already have that driver installed... but it looks like it only works for the GF9500 =/
    or does anyone know away to install the windows 7 drivers on the chipset?
    maybe changing the boot menu setting to Onboard --> install driver --> change it back to pci-e ?

    The coprocessor error flag (? or ! on an yellow background) is often from an interference to your CPU coprocessor functionality from an incompatible or conflicting videocard driver or Motherboard BIOS. Since you have 2 Video adapters in your system (an integrated Video adapter and an Add -on PCIE Video card) you have to consider conflict from 3 sources in your troubleshoot. Check your MoBo documentation for any CMOS setup that you can configure to disable your Onboard Video adapter in the BIOS Seup. If that is possible ,disable and save [don't forget to Enable your PCI/PCIE ]and reboot and check DM > Display adapter to make sure you have only your desired adapter and the "Coprocessor" yellow flag has gone away.

    If problem persists, Restart in Safe Mode using F8 taps and go to DM and Disable [ Don't uninstall] your onboard Video and on reboot if prompted to install a driver after "New Hardaware detected" click Cancel.
    See if that fixes the issue.


    Make sure you have installed the Correct Video card driver [VISTA driver for your Windows 7 (x32 or X64 as the case may be) ]for your PCIE Video card to run in compatibilty mode as Win7 Beta has no "dedicated" video driver for your card yet.

    Finally Consider MoBO BIOS Update if they have any to improve its functionality or remedy known pproblems

    I hope this helps.

    I'll definitely try your methods but it might take a while because I got some exams coming up...
    I'll tell you if it worked (or not :p )

    Finally, I got some time for my PC :p
    without searching through my BIOS I can say that there is no option to disable the onboard graphics card, but I do have the option to choose the primary graphic card (orsomething like that) and there I choose PCI-e, my 9500 obviously
    so I dont think this option will work
    im gonna try the other method

    Allright, I booted in safe mode, disabled the coprocessor in device manager, and rebooted
    the exclamation thing has disappeared :D

    well thank you very much cmn! ^^

    looks like I can go on trying to solve my other problem, enabling SATA, but I guess ill have to start a new thread for that
