Windows 7 Ultimate install - Coprocessor driver missing

I installed Windows 7 on an HP Pavilion dv9000 laptop.  I downloaded the nVidia driver (187MB) and most of the drivers were updated.  Except I have two problems:

The first and most frustrating is the device manager reads Other Devices - Coprocessor and it doesn't give me any information on what it is.

Second, the NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller has the yellow exclamation also.

I think the coprocessor might have something to do with my microphone, because no one can hear me on my webcam anymore.

Any ideas would be very helpful.

Can you take a screenshot of the following?

Under Device Manager:
Right-Click on the device with the yellow exclamation point>Properties>Details>Device Instance ID's

This way we can locate the proper drivers.

I don't see Device Instance IDs, but I do see Device Instance Path
PCI/VEN_10DE&DEV_0543&SUBSYS_30CF103C&REV_A2\3&2411E6FE&1&0B
I also added a screenshot for Hardware IDs and Compatible IDs.

Perfect, both devices are now installed properly.  Thanks so much.  Can you tell me how you found the right download and what you used to look for it?

It's magic!

I just took your screenshot and looked at the first part of the Hardware ID's. These are internal and identify what type of hardware and manufacturer that you have. Specifically this

\PCI/VEN_10DE&DEV_0543

PCI Device
Vendor ID 10DE
Device ID 0543

Go to this website:  http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

plug in the info that you gathered above and it gives you a link to the exact manufacuturer and vendor for the specified device. Click on the link that it gives you, and you have the exact driver match for your device.

Glad I was able to help!
