Cuda on dell m4400 with NVIDIA Quadro FX 770 M

The latest CUDA driver needed to run GPUmat won’t recognize my graphics card!

Step 1:
I’m trying to start using GPUmat with Matlab. Following the instuctions on the GPUmat homepage:

System requirements

Please download the GPUmat version corresponding to your CUDA installation. For example, GPUmat_0.1_CUDA_2.1 is the GPUmat version 0.1 that works with NVIDIA CUDA 2.1. NVIDIA CUDA must be installed to use GPUmat. GPUmat was tested with MATLAB ver. R2007a or newer installed.

*Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) INSTALLED

Step 2:
Trying to do that the installation program gives an error message stating that I am missing the appropriate hardware. I checked the graphics card and this computer has an NVIDIA Quadro FX 770 M, which is mentioned on the list of CUDA-enabled products. It already has a driver installed but GPUmat won’t work.

Step 3:
Further investigation tells me I already have the correct type of driver. My problem seems to be a too old version (176.26, should be 190.xx) , as described on page 4 in this document:
http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compu…2.3_Windows.pdf
To update the driver I follow the recommended link and end up in the error message from step 2 again. (same page)

Step 4:
So, I uninstall the old driver and try to install through step 1 again. The same error message about wrong hardware.

Error message from Matlab R2009b when trying to run GPUmat with the old driver:
