    Is my laptop capable of Nvidia CUDA driver?

    I'm trying to install the Nvidia CUDA driver for an image upscaling program. My computer is an older laptop with Nvidia Geforce G105M graphics card, but looks likes its CUDA capable..? :]

    I don't know what to do from here. The G105M doesn't show up in Nvidia's CUDA GPUs list.

    Well according to your video specs cuda is supported : GeForce G105M | Specifications | GeForce

    Are you trying to install your drivers over the old ones? Maybe this is the issue?
    Try to de-install all drivers with DDU and then reinstall your new drivers with CUDA?

    As far as i know the only Nvidia driver installed is the graphics driver, which i think was auto installed by Windows Update. I just updated it to 341.95, but the CUDA installer wants to update it even further to 353.90 (as seen in screenshot), not sure if it will work.

    Should i install all 6 and see what happens?

    I decided to install them and after doing so I realized I installed the wrong files, I actually needed something called "Nvidia cuDNN" lol

    I can't tell the difference, it's all mumbo jumbo to me
