Can't install CUDA 6.5 on HP ZBook laptop w/k2200m

Running a new HP ZBook 17 G2, Windows 7 Pro 64-bit SP1
w/nvidia Quadro k2200m, driver version
nvidia control panel says version 333.56
Trying to install CUDA 6.5 SDK, I get
This graphics driver could not find compatible hardware. You may continue installation, but you will not be able to run CUDA applications.
I install anyway.
deviceQuery.exe returns “CUDA driver is insufficient for CUDA runtime”
deviceQuerydrv.exe returns
CUDA Driver Version: 6.0
CUDA Capability Major/Minor version number: 5.0

I think maybe I need a new driver, but on nvidia driver download page, I select Quadro >> Quadro Series (notebooks), there is no option for k2200m. I try to download k2100m driver (version 347.88) and install, but I get “NVIDIA Installer cannot continue, This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware”

What’s going on?

CUDA 6.5 requires a 340.xx driver or newer.
Go back to the driver that was originally on your laptop. If it was 340.xx or newer, then you can install CUDA 6.5.
In that case, install the CUDA 6.5 toolkit, but deselect the option to install the driver.

Alternatively, install CUDA 7. The driver in CUDA 7 installer should recognize your K2200m.

Alternatively, install CUDA 6.0 which is compatible with the 333.56 driver currently installed.

Tried to run CUDA 7.0.28_windows setup. It does not recognize the k2200m (“No compatible graphics hardware found”)

Is 333.56 really the latest driver available for this card?? So no way to run CUDA >6.0?


You may need to get drivers directly from HP for this product.

Go to the HP web site and get the 341.44 driver they have posted for this product. That will work with CUDA 6.5.

Click on the above link. Then expand the “Driver - Graphics” section. You’ll see the NVIDIA 341.44 driver posted there for download.
