I recently did a clean install of windows 7 pro x86 while my acer aspire x1301 came factory with x64 home. The problem is now my coprocessor is missing it's driver and the acer site only shows the chipset driver for the x64 not the x86. Can I just try going with the x64? Am I just SOL? Or maybe i find the chipset someplace else? I've looked all over and I can't seem to find the chipset by itself. One site said my chipset is NVIDIA Geforce 9200 and that's also my graphics card too. Is this what i'm looking for and i didn't realize it? Any advice will be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

According to This Page, , Win 7 already has the 32-bit chipset drivers needed.

If that's the case any idea why it says my coprocessor is missing it's driver and windows update solution is go to the acer support website?

Post the exact error message as it appears...and tell us the exact circumstances that provoke it.

"A chipset in your computer is missing a driver. Click to download the driver from the acer, Inc website.". Then the link is to the acer support website. When I select my model and select windows 7 professional 32 bit there is no option for chipset driver. When I scroll to 64 bit then it has the chipset driver. But they don't for 32 bit.

Are you running Win 7 in 64-bit mode?

Right-click on Computer, select Properties...what does it say at System Type?

No I'm running 32 bit that's why I have a problem. If I was running x64 then I'd just download those drivers. But I need the drivers for 32 bit
