Where to download coprocessor driver for HP G60 running Windows 8 Pro?

I am trying to update my coprocessor driver for my laptop. After upgrading to Windows 8 Pro from Vista, I noticed there was no driver installed for this. The problem also is that it cannot be identified by my computer, it has no name or other information so I do not know where to look. I went to HP and searched but they only have updates for Windows 7, not 8. I do not want to take a chance and download some obscure file and damage my computer. Windows cannot find the file when it searches for it either.

Hi,

 

I've included a link to the Specs for your model...be sure to double check...

The only thing I see as a possible coprocesser is the actual CPU and the Nvidia...

 

There is most likely another from AMD that is not listed, and that is probably the one you need...

 

The chip you probably need drivers for would have a number similar to AMD M780G

 

These are sometimes called Northbridge or Southbridge. 

 

If you can't find the exact chipset number, try this link... there are about 30 different versions of your G60 model....
