I need to do scientific parallel computer with my Qosmio F750, but I'm unable to run the basic test of CUDA called "bandwidthTest.exe". It returns the following error:
cudaGetDeviceProperties return 35
-> CUDA driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version
I researched about this problem, and all people agreed that the driver of my display has to be updated. I have version 290 already of the driver, but the latest version is 301.24. Why can't I simply install the NVidia drivers from NVidia's website like I do with all my other computers?
What can I do to solve this problem? I don't want the certified driver from Toshiba... I just want a standard NVidia driver.

With computers you mean laptops or desktops? I don’t know where do you work but I presume in your company or institution where are you working there is IT department. Contact people who are working there and I hope they can help you with explanation why you cannot use original NVIDIA drivers.
There is big difference between notebooks and desktops. Desktop graphic cards are supported by graphic card manufacturers directly but on mobile units support is by notebook manufacturers.
There are many reasons for that.
Qosmio F750 is a laptop, which has GeForce 540M. I used to have GeForce 9600M on my old laptop, but I could always update the drivers the way I want, and my computer wasn't a slave to Toshiba drivers. That's why I'm surprised. Neither Notebook drivers from Nvidia nor Desktop drivers are working...
What's the point of doing that? it's just the same chipset!!!!! Is there any workaround to force custom drivers to be installed on my computer?
