CUDA driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version (windows 10)

hello, I have some problem with my cuda installation:
I have only 50GB per month so I have tried to download cuda_9.2.148_win10.exe to install locally but I get HTTP 416 error when I tried to resume my download (my 3g+ connection disconnect every couple of minutes)
On my windows 10 Home 64bits, I let “nvidia Geforce 605” driver automatically installed by windows, I install VS 2017 then Cuda 9.2 but my cuda installation failed after several hour of download and installation. When I start cuda installation, system compatibility check failed with this warning: “This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware”
So I try the method described by pagr12 here :, Install the standard VGA driver, Delete all Cuda references, uninstall vs2017 to install vs2015, restart windows, reinstall cuda 9.2 and installation complete. I compile my c++ project and I get this error when I call cudaGetDeviceCount: “CUDA driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version”.
Then, I uninstall cuda 9.2, install nvidia driver 391.35-desktop-win10-64bit-international-whql.exe, restart w10, reinstall cuda 9.2, installation complete. Why It complete with nvidia driver but not with driver installed by w10? why sometimes all nvidia references must be deleted before cuda installation?
I recompile my c++ project and I always get this error: “CUDA driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version”.
I see here that my graphics card support CUDA but geforce 605 is not in the cuda gpu list from here : so I am not sure if my graphics hardware is cuda compatible?
Cuda z give some information :
driver version : 391.35
driver dll version : 9.10 (
runtime dll version : 6.50
Could someone please help me? Thanks

391.35 is not the correct driver version for CUDA 9.2

GeForce 605 is a Fermi processor that is not supported by CUDA 9.2

The last CUDA version supporting that GPU is CUDA 8.0

CUDA 8.0 should work fine with 391.35

Thanks for your reply!

Where can we find CUDA versions compatibility with driver versions? (Or with GPUs)
