TLDR; question is : What is the procedure to install both drivers for the GPGPU Tesla K40 and for the display adapter Quadro 600 ?
We had a GPU computing workstation since 2014 running a Quadro 600 + Tesla K40c under Windows 7 enterprise. But we were forced to format and reinstall Windows 7, and now we are unable to make both card operating properly.
Our simulation software require to have CUDA 10.0 driver installed with the K40c. This is provided by the nvidia drivers 411.98. In the other hand, to make the old Quadro 600 card working, we also need the 377.83 graphics driver.
The main issue is the following: if we install drivers for the Tesla, driver for Quadro 600 is overwritten, and graphic card will not work properly. At this point, nvidia-smi will display an error message “blahblah”, and we can’t use our simulation tool that fails to discover the K40c.
If we install driver for Quadro 600, it “removes” the CUDA 10.0 driver and nvidia-smi will show on properly, but without cuda version. And our simulation tool will not run properly.
We don’t have directly the control on the source code of the simulation tool, so we can’t seek in this direction.
I already contacted nVidia online chat support, they were not able to answer to me.
