I just got my first AMD card Sapphire 7870 and when I installed the drivers my internet pretty much stopped working. Did a full reinstall of windows - thought it was the fact that my chipset was Nvidia - and when I installed the drivers again same thing. Uninstalling them fixed the issue.

Also I have an unknown Coprocessor in device manager.

You probably uninstalled the nvidia motherboard drivers.

Go to the motherboard manufacturer's website and download the newest drivers for it.

Not sure why you need that. This a software issue. Add software and internet goes, remove software and it comes back.

Still thanks for the reply

I just did a full format reinstall of Windows 7 Ultimate and installed no drivers except 12.11 beta 7. I did the reinstall because I thought I removed a registry key for the chipset pci controller.

So that variable is out. This is a fresh install of windows.

Chipset drivers are No1 priority and a reboot is also recommended before proceeding with graphics drivers etc although you should install your LAN, USB etc before them also...

I know the beta drivers work well, but have you also tried the official release?

Where do you find USB drivers for my mobo?
