Trying to load a Lexmark Z23 printer to an old Cyrix MediaGx 266 processor.
Gives me the above message.
Have finally won the battle of display and USB, now this is what I get. Am
I at a dead end, or is there something else I can fiddle with?
About ready to throw the towel in.
Thanks.
Mark

Floating Point Unit (FPU) or Math Coprocessor Support is often a setting
in BIOS Setup, F2, Del, Esc, etc, at power-on. It imight be turned off
in this laptop, the Cyrix CPU does not have coprocessor support (I doubt
this), or there is a mainboard driver that is missing. The coprocessor
should show up in Device Manager.
