I have forgotten alot over the years - Back in the 486 days "Math co-processor" rings a bell - Seems like there was a special processor designed just for math functions to aid the main processor(All in one Chip) - Dont quote me though - Its been along time

Do you think there is something not functioning properly or could it be a false report

Perhaps you could run a test on the CPU to see if it reports something on the Coprocessor

You can try the Vista drivers for the coprocessor, or you can write it off as a device that HP does not yet support. 10:1 says it's completely unimportant to the speed and functionality of your PC, especially if you've only noticed something is wrong because it was in devmgmt.

If you download and install the nvidia drivers from the HP website the coprocessor will go away. Make sure to cancel when it goes to install the storage drivers or your computer will come to a crawl. The drivers will take care of the problem.

Why would nvidia have anything to do with storage - Are we talking about a chipset driver

the package that HP has is just that. It is a package. This includes the storage drivers. They give you the warning about cancelling installation at the storage drivers. Check it out and see what it will do. I have installed windows 7 about 6 times now on a dv9000 and everytime this took care of the problem.

nVidia has made northbridge/southbridge chipsets for several years now. Since about '03 or '04.
NVIDIA nForce Chipset Driver

Olg207:
You have an ECS GeForce 6100PM-M2 motherboard, according to your System Specs.

Download your drivers from HERE.

Coprocessor in Device Manager error

Here is what I did.. just used the search computer and selected the windows 7 RC hard drive. Found the Nvidia driver and it installed it.. all is good. It did mention something of the video driver though I had already installed the current video driver from nvidia and it did not fix the problem.

Hope this helps all of you..
