1) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : Cuda initialisation failure, temporary exit - every time on every GPU task - what is the problem (Message 1848074)

CUDA is a part of your GPU, and is activated by the drivers. It being seen as missing or unable to initialize is a problem with the drivers. Reinstalling BOINC won't help in this as BOINC itself doesn't use your GPU, nor does it add any functions to your GPU.
Reinstalling drivers is the only thing you can do, and if newer drivers don't fix the problem or even cause the problem, then you'll have to try to install older drivers. Also install drivers from the GPU manufacturer, Nvidia in this case. Do not let Windows install them.
Try to install the drivers with a clean install. This is an option in the driver installer, so do a custom installation and read all the screens.


clean install didn't help, but installing older drivers solved the problem, thanks

Hi

Recently I updated BOINC and my Nvidia drivers, after this update I can't run any GPU tasks. It runs to about 10 to 17 % and then stops and I have this message:
2017-02-11 16:45:28 | SETI@home | task postponed 180.000000 sec: Cuda initialisation failure, temporary exit

I reinstalled BOINC, installed the older version, reinstalled Nvidia drivers. Nothing worked

I have a GTX 980ti with the newest 378.49 drivers.

Anyone can help?
