I’ve recently purchased a GTX 2070 and am struggling to get it recognized by my system. The seller recommended I post here before requesting a return.
I am running Ubuntu 16.04 and have reinstalled the CUDA drivers. Earlier today, I had two 970s in the system and they were both working fine and recognized. I’ve now removed them both, and tried moving the 2070 to both slots, but still nothing. My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD3 which I believe supports the 2070.
I’d love to know if there’s ways to troubleshoot whether it’s a hardware issue or a software issue.
Here’s some outputs of commands:
