Im new to the scene. Just have some general support questions.
1/ Motherboatd model - X8DTG-DF
2/ Tesla Cards - Nvidia C1060
3/ CPU - 2x Intel Xeon E5520 Quad-Core’s
4/ RAM , 6x 2GB DDR3-1333 Registered ECC Hynix
5/ Onboard VGA - Matrox G200e
6/ OS - Win XP 64bit
6/ Nvidia Card used - Nvidia NVS 285
I was trying to get my Tesla c1060 cards working with an non-nvidia onboard VGA which is used as primary video output. I couldn’t get the Tesla cards to show up as it said no CUDA device detected. The thing is that the 2 tesla cards have shown up in device manager. So, my conclusion is that windows XP doesnt support two graphic card drivers. The primary video card has to be NVIDIA chipset? Is this correct.
I disabled the onboard vga port and have put in a Nvidia NVS 285 card to be the primary video output. And i installed the CUDA driver instead of the normal nvidia driver. After i installed the CUDA driver and toolkit and the sdk sample all version 2.3, then i ran the same sample program as in my first question and it ran!. But the thing is that the Nvidia NVS 285 card is not CUDA enabled… Why is this so? I am able to change the NVS 285 settings on the control manager found in control panel.
3.my last question is if windows cannot support two or multiple device drivers is any linux distro able to support this?
Please i am not a programmer, I have just started in this scene.
Thank you in advance.
