Cuda error on xp 64 Tescla C1060 (with GF 7900 GS)

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”)
I have
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!

I’m having exactly the same problem with a C1060 running on an XP64 but the graphic card is a GeForce FX5200 installed in a PCI slot!

NVIDIA, help us please!

Both your graphics cards are not Cuda Supported products.

I found the Dell Precision T5400 with Xp 64 on “Systems for use with Tesla C1060” list on nvidia site:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/tesla_compati…orms.html#c1060

(That is why i chose that machine).

I read the Tesla C1060 installation guide:

http://www.nvidia.com/docs/IO/56484/NV_C10…Guide_FINAL.pdf

and found only that on Windows : “NVIDIA discrete or integrated graphics solution required”, no refers to both card need to support CUDA.

(and of course Tesla C1060 supports Cuda:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_gpus.html

Please help where did you find that both cards need to support Cuda.

(I will buy a cuda enabled second card if i have to, but do not want to end up at same stage after buying that card if the problem is not that).

Many-many thanks!

Ok,
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.

It has no on-board graphics:

As you may see at the screenshot it has two cards in it: GF 7900 Gs, and Tesla C1060,

Thanks

I’ve been working on this problem today and it was recommended to me to do the following:

Uninstall any drivers that are installed for your GeForce video card. The C1060 drivers are all-in-one type and don’t like any other driver being installed.

Then I was asked to go to the following website:

http://developer.nvidia.com/object/cuda_2_3_downloads.html

and download the latest XP 64 bit driver, 64 bit toolkit and 64 bit SDK which I found to be:

“cudadriver_2.3_winxp_64_190.38_general.exe”
“cudatoolkit_2.3_win_64.exe”
“cudasdk_2.3_win_64.exe”

After you install the new SDK, you should go to the following directory:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA GPU Computing SDK\C\bin\win64\Release

and run the program:
deviceQuery.exe

In my case, the CUDA driver is not found. Please let me know whether this works for you.

Good luck!
Chris

I forgot to mention I also have a Dell. A Precision 490

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.

What do you mean the CUDA driver is not found?

Have you tried to uninstall all driver and start from scratch with the method you have mentioned as this should definitely work. Let me know how you go.

Thanks.

In my case:

deviceQuery result:

"There is no device supporting CUDA

Device 0: "Device Emulation (CPU)

Cuda Driver Version: 2.3

Cuda Runtime Version: 2.3

"

Is this after you tried the above mentioned steps?

Yes, exactly.

Are you trying to run Accelware code? They recommended the following video driver:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp64_190.38_whql.html

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.

Chris

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.

Any new updates from the OP??

AsIzzy

Check out this thread:

http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtop…rt=#entry474518

which states that the drivers for C1060 don’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.

Chris

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??

After a clean install of xp 64 and followed the steps of the official guide:

http://www.nvidia.com/docs/IO/56484/NV_C10…Guide_FINAL.pdf

having the same result.

I bought Dell machine only for the purpose of using C1060, as the nvidia site says it is compatible:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/tesla_compati…orms.html#c1060

The official guide in the system requirements says:

“Windows based system: NVIDIA discrete or integrated graphics solution required” and have found no mention on the second card need to be CUDA enabled.

Please let me know, if you have found any reference from NVIDIA that says what you mentioned (both card need to be Cuda enabled)!

Many thanks!

“Also if you have problems with Dell Machines why not try our products??”

Things are not so simply here :( We need to have plans on cost, and need to have approval on plans before start spending money…

(That is why we did carefully read the documentations before buying the machine and the card…)

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.
