Hi guys came across your site via Mr Google

And im hoping you can aide me in a small problem

When i boot up my machine i get a message saying "New hardware found Co Processor" when i try let windows find the mentioned it just says cant find it

In my device manager i have a yellow Exclamation mark beside the SYSTEM DEVICES -> coprocessor

I visted the Nvidia site to update my GFX card driver which is a Geforce 8400 GS to the newest driver and still the coprocessor warning keeps appearing.

I would be greatful for any help on this matter cos its driving me nuts..

Kind regards.

It is probably related to the motherboard chipset drivers. Do you have any other yellow exclamation mark devices?

I am guessing SMU or SMbus. Double click the yellow device in Device Manager to open the Properties display, then click the Details tab. In the Property drop down menu select Hardware ids. You should see a text string similar to PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0271. What does it show?

Thanks. I downloaded the drivers and found it looks like you need the "Chipset-SMU" driver.
I don't know your operating system so choose one of the ones for X86 depending on whether you have XP or Vista/7.

After you download the zip file, right click and extract the files to some temp folder, and then run Setup.exe,

You may need the other driver named "Chipset-SMBus" as well. Did the computer happen to come with a motherboard driver install CD?

Edit: I see it is now working so maybe better not to try this.
