NVDIA Tesla T4 Driver always error This device cannot start. (Code 10)

This error shows up under “device manager” in windows. I tried windows 10 and windows server 2022 on two different machines. One a workstation and the other Supermicro Server.

The driver installed was 516.94-data-center-tesla-desktop-win10-win11-64bit-dch-international.exe

The error that shows is:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)
Insufficient system resources exist to complete the API.

Note both systems have plent of resources.

Note that we tried also installing in ESXi and also the driver doesn’t seem to work.
nvidia-smi shows the follwoing
Device not found

Anybody know why no driver is recognizing the card properly?


What is the use case? Seems to be a vGPU use case and wojld require the vGPU driver and licenses. Please try to start with a eval for vGPU and the vGPU driver.
