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"
I gave you a link to a driver and i asked you for a picture of your "unknown 3.00 GHz".

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.
