    Where's my Coprocessor Driver?

    frenchy01

      AMD Phenom II X4 940, MSI-7374 MB, 8 G DDR2, Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 video. Recent upgrade to Win 10, now the coprocessor driver cannot be found anywhere and Win doesn't Recognize my processor. HELP! BSOD Message Stop Code "WATCHDOG VIOLATION"

          You don't need any drivers for your CPU and motherboard using windows10 (it already have it)

          But you may try to install this drivers

          What you mean by that "Win doesn't Recognize my processor","now the coprocessor driver cannot be found anywhere"? Any pictures of that?

              "It says AMD processor model unknown 3.00 GHz" under windows system - About

               

              Under Coprocessor Properties is says:

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

              There are no compatible drivers for this device.

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

              It will not update and says "Windows was unable to install your coprocessor"

                          INFORMATION REQUIRED WHEN POSTING A QUESTION

                          First of all you need to update your BIOS 
                          If you tell me full name of your motherboard i will give you a link to latest BIOS.You may use HWinfo to determine that name.

                          Unpack that driver (i gave you a link) and press "update driver" (see below) -choose manual search and point to folder with unpacked driver.

                                          I was hoping to get the updated Bios.

                                          The processor is still shown in Windows as unknown

                                              Yes, you really need to update BIOS.It is important to determine full name of your motherboard. Use HWinfo64 or AIDA 64 and upload info here. Iwill give you a link to last BIOS.
