supported device

hey i have just bought a 8500GT and installed the CUDA driver along with the toolkit and SDK as well as installing visual studio.

My problem is that when i try and run the project in the SDK called benchmark, it prints to the screen ‘Could not find a CUDA supported device’ or some other error messsage to that effect.

What am i doing wrong? what have i missed out on doing?

Which display driver did you install?

NVIDIA Driver for Microsoft Windows XP with CUDA Support (169.21)

the one from this page:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_get.html#windows

I also notice the same problem. I have an HP8710w laptop that has an FX1600M GPU. It is listed as supported in the 2.0 documentation. The version I am using is 174.55. Here is what the system information utility reports.

Any help would be appreciated.
