I have to move a C2075 into a new workstation. Unfortunately the workstation does not yet have another GPU to team up with the C2075. Installing windows worked (display limited to 1600x1200, as expected), but I’m having problems after installing windows updates and the current Tesla-driver for windows 7 64Bit.
The display is now heavily distorted with multi-colored blocks. The boot-up works, the problems start at the login-screen. Logging into windows is possible (typing the password blind), but does not solve the problem. It is not possible to do anything with the system right now. Also the resolution has dropped to 800x600 or lower.
Restarting in safe mode works.
Is it possible to use the C2075 without a companion card?
Are there any recommendations for the companion card? Due to a limited budget I cannot spend too much this year (100 – 150 Euro of regular budget left). I want to use the system for development work (little DirectX, no complex 3D renderings, mostly CUDA).
