525m problem


Just purchased a Dell XPS 15 (502x) and it comes with a “NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 525M 1GB graphics with Optimus”. I have installed all the CUDA software packages listed on the web but when I try to run the examples, the programs either hang forever or report an immediate error.

Are there any people having the same problems? Any workarounds?



I’ve run into this same issue - because this is an Optimus laptop, it will default to using the Intel integrated graphics unless the application has an Optimus profile. The solution is to select the NVIDIA GPU as “Preferred graphics adaptor” in the NVIDIA control panel.

Wonderful. I am going to try that. Thanks for your prompt response.
