CUDA on a Dell XPS 15 in Windows 7 64-bit

leave a comment »

I just figured out how to get NVIDIA CUDA to work on my laptop. You need to replace the generic Dell driver with this one:

266.58_notebook_winvista_win7_64bit_international_whql.exe

You need to do a custom clean installation and make sure the PhysX box is checked.

I had to do some CUDA programming on the Windows partition, so now I have to figure out how to configure all my IDEs to work with CUDA. I will try and post detailed configuration info for Netbeans at least.
