Unable to find Titan Xp driver/ CUDA for Tensorflow 1.14

I have been running this system for a while.
Recently I upgraded tensorflow to 1.14 and Python 3.7x

OS is Linux Mint Sylvia 18.3 forked from Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS (Xenial Xerus)

I have this Nvidia driver:

NVIDIA-SMI 384.130 Driver Version: 384.130

I got this error when I ran Tensorflow on Titan XP:

tensorflow.python.framework.errors_impl.InternalError: cudaGetDevice() failed.
Status: CUDA driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version

Here is my display hardware:

At https://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx,
I tried downloading a new driver and there is no driver for Titan Xp.
See below.
Strange, I did install Titan Xp driver a about a 1-1/2 years or so ago…

[I am going to try and upload the png screenshot]

When “Download Type” was reset to “Studio Driver (SD)”, I got this search result response:

No certified downloads were found for this configuration. To include beta downloads in your search, click here

Where can I get a new driver for Titan Xp for the newer TensorLow 1.14?
If I do get one, how do I install it over existing driver (NVIDIA Driver Version: 384.130 )?
I will also include a bug report here.

nvidia-bug-report.log.gz (85 KB)

choose game ready driver instead

how to install will depend on how you installed 384.130

Otherwise you can remove 384.130 and install a new driver.

Removal instructions are in the linux install guide for CUDA.

It has been a long time, I think I followed nvidia’s instruction on installing the driver.
Like I said above, I could not find the Titan Xp driver here:


when I specify TITAN Xp and Ubtuntu 16.04.
So how do I go about getting a new driver?

I looked here:

  1. Removing CUDA Toolkit and Driver

choose linux 64-bit instead of ubuntu
