“It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.”
— Herman Melville
Generally, everybody that owns a computer has encountered missing driver problems and this applies to people using Windows.
Missing drivers are one of the most common problems encountered by Windows users.
I will start by explaining to you what a driver is.
A driver is a software component that establishes the communication between the operating system and the device.
This allows the operating system to access hardware functions. Different manufacturing companies produce the drivers, and they must be compatible with the hardware of the computer. For example, installing an older version of a driver on a compucan cause it to malfunction. Also, a driver does not function if installed on an incompatible computer.
Usually, drivers are installed together with the operating system
Not all necessary drivers are installed, and you have to install them manually. What is the coprocessor and what driver is needed?
It is a chip that helps the main processor carry out such special tasks as; floating point arithmetic, graphics, signal processing, and I/O interfacing with accessory devices. This offloads some of the work from the main processor, increasing the system’s performance. You need to install the latest coprocessor driver for the computer to function properly.
Most users notice the absence of this driver when they upgrade from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10. If this driver is absent, you may notice a decrease in the speed and performance of the computer. This driver can also be absent from a newly installed operating system. To confirm that the driver is absent, check in Device Manager for the coprocessor. The coprocessor is usually found under Other devices. You will notice a yellow exclamation sign next to the Coprocessor device. If the device is functioning properly, this sign is absent.
In this article, I will show you different ways to fix the coprocessor Driver Missing Error and any other driver problems you may encounter in the future.
- Updating the driver via device manager
You need to update the driver via Windows Update or Device Manager. Here are the steps to follow:
- Open the Start Menu and type device manager.

- Select the Driver tab and click Update Driver
- Click search automatically for updated driver software on the next window.
Windows will search and download the latest Coprocessor driver for your device. Another way of solving this problem is by uninstalling the driver. Follow these steps to uninstall the coprocessor:
- Right-click on Coprocessor and select Uninstall to uninstall the device.
When the device is uninstalled, the list is refreshed and the coprocessor is deleted from the devices tree list.
- Right-click on any device on the list and select Scan for hardware changes. Windows will automatically searchfor and install the coprocessor driver for Window 10.
Another method is by downloading the driver from the manufacturer site.
