I just installed CUDA 2.3 on Windows XP 64 bit and I am not able to use Cuda. (Devicequery return “There is no device supporting Cuda”)
Dell Precision R5400:
XP 64 bit,
Cuda 2.3 driver, sdk, toolkit installed (also tried 2.0, 3.0 beta1)
2 Grahpics cards:
-GeForce 7900 GS
-Tesla C1060 (2x 6 pin connector, secondary card pci PCI Express x16)
Can anyone help me with this?
Many thanks in advance!
What i meant was that the 7900GS and the 5200FX weren’t CUDA enabled hardware. Can you tell me if your m/b has on-board graphics? If so it has to be an nvidia chipset otherwise under winxp you can’t have multiple drivers for display.
There may as well be a problem if you have installed a separate driver for the other card then the c1060. The Cuda driver should also have drivers for your other cards. And note that do not install the driver just for the 7900gs or 5200fx. As the Cuda driver should be an all in one driver as mentioned. Also please note that the 7900GS and 5300FX are not Cuda enabled Cards! Only your C1060.
Follow Edoctors Install method and it should all work fine.
Also, some people have found that they need the 8 pin power plug and the 6 pin power plug both connected for the C1060 to work. Didn’t help in my case, but maybe it will help in yours?
If you go to START -> RUN -> msinfo32 and then go into Components -> Display you’re supposed to see the Adapter RAM listed as something besides “Not Available”. Mine says “Not Available” and my driver version is wrong, so then I noticed my uninstall didn’t fully clean out the previous video drivers (something you need to do before you install ONLY the C1060 driver for both cards.) Once I figure out how to clean out the registry and other places I’ll try again.
Apparently you can’t use any other display driver than a Nvidia. We tried an ATI and had problems. We were told that the C1060 driver doesn’t like other manufacturer’s cards. We switched back to GEFORCE.
I don’t think that NVIDIA doesn’t like other manufacturers, it’s just WinXP doesn’t have support for multiple vendor graphics drivers. And i’m pretty sure you didn’t need a 8 and 6 pin to be connected, you can either have 1x8pin or 2x6pin that is how it should be set up and with the appropriate psu.
which states that the drivers for C1060 donâ€™t support the GeForce FX series cards.
Someone I know that sells software that runs on the C1060 told me that
“In everything we do, the driver version is the same between the various cards in the machine. Can you find another CUDA-enabled NVIDIA graphics card?”
It seems all cards must be CUDA enabled?
For the software we use, the vendor indicated that the NVIDIA NVS 295 has been proven to work with the C1060. I found one on Amazon.com for $111. You need two PCI-Ex16 slots spaced at least two slots apart, one slot for the C1060 and one slot for the NVS 295.
I’m also going to try a different computer than my Dell. It seems I’ve read a lot of threads where people are having problems with Dell machines.
As i have been trying to say for the last couple of replies… Find another card which supports CUDA!! FX 5500 is not supported with CUDA. I dont think all cards have to support CUDA as i found with tests i ran with a NVS 285 with c1060’s the CUDA examples worked. I think you can have a GPU version that would be recent and it will work but you may have to be lucky to find one.
Also if you have problems with Dell Machines why not try our products??
Ok, I think i am in the wrong here… Sorry for my mistake. Your primary graphics can be any Nvidia chipset card and your other card should be a cuda enabled card. Sorry about that. Are you still having this problem?
I have attached a query file so download it and extract to anywhere on the pc. Open CMD and navigate to where you saved it and open “oem_query.bat” from within cmd.
Password for the rar file is “xenon” without the “”.
If this doesn’t work, you will have to make sure that the tesla card shows up in Device Manager and reseat the tesla card and make sure you can see a green light on the tesla card near the power connectors. And make sure that only CUDA driver is installed with SDK and Toolkit and 7900gs display driver is uninstalled. Hope you get this working dude. DeviceQuery.rar (661 KB)
