I have recently acquired a Dell XPS 15 laptop with an Intel Core i7 740QM cpu, an nVidia GT435M graphics card, and 6 GB DDR3 RAM. After installing the Cuda toolkit and Cuda SDK, when I try to execute bandwidthtest, I get the following error in Windows 7 (64 bit):
[bandwidthTest] bandwidthTest.exe starting... Running on... Quick Mode d:/bld_sdk10_x64.pl/rel/gpgpu/toolkit/r3.2/sdk/SDK10/Compute/C/src/bandwidthTest /bandwidthTest.cu(598) : cudaSafeCall() Runtime API error : CUDA driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version.
I understand that I require a CUDA capable driver from nVidia, but when I try to download one from the nVidia site, I am asked to download drivers from Dell rather than nVidia.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: I have tried to install both
as drivers. But I get the message “This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware.”
