Well, I can't show you any proof but I can speak from experience in modifying the INF, of course, your results may vary. Whenever you modify the INF file for the NVIDIA drivers, you have to download the international drivers. So start by downloading the international drivers for the Quadro/Tesla (I downloaded version 296.70). Extract the installer using ...

I just googled the Quadro 6000-series to see what it was and my jaw dropped. I understand why you're not keen on forking out for it! The Windows 7 drivers should install on Windows 2008 just fine, if they are signed. Now that 2008 R2 actually requires a high-end graphics card for some of its fancy new Hyper-V features, you'll find full support (I assume ...

Try disabling the on-board graphics adapter from BIOS setup. If you are worried that you'll lose all video, document all settings in there so you safely can reset the CMOS in case it doesn't work. Removing the Nvidia card should also revert to the onboard adapter.

The real question is: is there a CLI command that outputs the GPU's temperature? If yes you're done. Write a script that is run by NRPE which runs the command, processes its output, returns the state you like.

The compute capability (CC) designates which GPU architecture generation the chip is based on. The number after the dot designates smaller changes within a generation. In general, newer generations have more features. There is a table in the CUDA C Programming Guide that shows the main features of each generation. A given version of the CUDA SDK can target ...

Not come off like too much of an ass, but first of all, this is really not the right place to be asking this question (I'd think SuperUser might be a more appropriate site) - this site is for professional system administration - and secondly you're probably basically screwed. Before you throw in the towel, you might want to search for tools to recover data ...

Could you try: For NVidia chipset motherboards: Goto BIOS - Integrated Peripherals - RAID Setup and enable RAID in the top option, then enable it for the ports that you have your RAID drives plugged into. Then Press F10 to save and exit.

Trying to "fix" the problem by throttling the GPUs when you detect overheating is a Bad Idea. You're operating on the ragged edge of the envelope, and even if you start throttling back at say 90 degrees (8 degrees before the "redline" that nVidia specifies) there's no guarantee you won't overshoot the limits of your cooling (and the hardware's safe operating ...

Build it yourself :) If you have a good feeling as to your requirements, what precludes you from establishing a co-location footprint and doing this yourself? Assuming your application stack is compute-heavy and wouldn't necessarily benefit from multiple availability zones or resiliency opportunities afforded by a cloud provider, wouldn't it make sense to ...

As I found out the hard way, you can't just enumerate devices and then call cudaSetDevice(). CudaSetDevice() always succeeds if the device is present and you haven't created a context. The solution I worked out here with some tips from NVidians is use nvidia-smi to set the compute mode on all GPUs to process exclusive, and then to filter out devices that ...

You may look into "rendering farms" and specialized in 3D "clouds" like http://www.revuprender.com/ Found the info on http://www.linkedin.com/answers/technology/information-technology/computer-networking/TCH_ITS_CNW/582293-876677

A suggestion from another trading systems engineer helped here. The problem was solved by moving from DisplayPort cables to DisplayPort->DVI adapters. Apparently, the NVS 450 has issues with pure DisplayPort setups, but stabilizes with DVI connections.

Have you verified that VMWare tools has been installed on the VM containers? I know that I've had some issues in the past where the video is choppy at best until I get the tools installed.

Yes, that is apparently quite common. This question is several weeks old so you probably already found the answer, but if not the fix seems to be to add: max_interrupt_work=N to modprobe.conf, as in: options forcedeth max_interrupt_work=15 Even with this change, I have still had some intermittent problems with forcedeth during large network transfers, ...

I have seen this issue with the nForce NIC drivers. Symptoms are as you describe: the NIC is not initialized properly on boot. On a 32-bit Vista Business system with the nForce gigabit NIC, I could only get reliable operation by using Vista's in-box drivers. None of nVidia's subsequent driver updates would work. In the end, I installed all the nForce ...
