I’ve installed for Cuda driver version 2.0 without any problems, more than that i have these results from deviceQuery:

But now when i’m trying to install version 2.1 i have this error message:

“The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware”

I have the following system configuration:

Sony Vaio VGN-FZ21SR, Windows Vista x64,

  • You cannot install new driver (downloaded from CUDA homepage) for your mobile graphics card (GeForce 8600M GS)! They dont support mobile card since version 178.28 or … i dont remember :wacko: !

  • You can download new driver for your mobile card from NVIDIA homepage (NVIDIA homepage)! But it’s still beta version (178.29) and has problem with OpenGL and DirectX interop (OpenGL and DirectX/interop application will fail to run :wacko: )

  • So if you want to use CUDA with OpenGL or DirectX on your mobile card, you have to download and install driver from this page :!

Wow! Thank you :)
