    I installed Windows 7 Home Edition and I get a warning icon for my Co-Processor under Device Manager. It says:

    "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

    To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver."

    I click Update Driver and click Search Automatically for updated driver software and it says Windows was unable to install your coprocessor. So I go to Nvidia's site and search for Nforce drivers for 64-bit Windows 7 and it says drivers not found. Help me please.

    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.
    It's those you'll need...;)

    Or give me the full name and type of mobo your talking about, and i'll see if i can find it for you...also need to know if your using win7 32 or 64bit.

    Thanks for the help. I ended up downloading 15.49_nforce_winvista_win7_64bit_international_whql.exe from Nvidia's site (don't ask me how I found it, I don't even know), and it fixed my coprocessor problem.
