I recently installed the CUDA toolkit on my system (XP QuadroFX1600 M) as I was looking into a GPU renderer. Since the install my graphics card and system have been in overdrive. The fan constantly works and my system is hot to the touch. This has also resulted in decreased performance, and the very lovely periodic system crash. I have tried to uninstall the toolkit but I receive ( Error Code -5004 : 0x7e ) losing valuable work time, NOT happy with NVIDIA at the moment…please help.
The toolkit won’t do that.
DRIVERS might though. And since you’ve got a mobile chip, it probably means you have the wrong INF file installed. How did you install the driver you’re using now?
Immediate fix while you diagnose: Install your laptop OEM’s provided driver.
