    In device manager I have "other devices" listed and in the drop down menu for other devices it list "coprocessor" and the shows what looks like a circle/yellow and exclamation point in it. Any body have an idea as to what this is and what I can do about it?

    Did you install the NForce chipset drivers - I think that should solve it. I guess it's just something that Windows 8 couldn't find a driver for and it was mapped as a co-processor (which is quite vague!).

    To be fair, Windows normally copes with popular chipset drivers fine - so it's probably working just as well without them... but there's no harm in giving it a go :).
