I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 on my System76 machine with a GeForce GTX 750 Ti. I was trying to install CUDA when I realized the driver wasn't properly installed.
I've tried multiple approaches to installing the driver, including nvidia runfiles, software-properties and the System76 drivers, but in all cases, when I run nvidia-smi afterward I get the same error:
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
When I run lspci, I see (among other things):
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM107 [GeForce GTX 750 Ti] (rev a2)
I can't run any of the CUDA samples.
Some other things that I noticed:
- modinfo does not have nvidia (except nvidiafb, which I've read is unrelated).
- I don't have /proc/driver/nvidia
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've burned way too much time on this.
