Can't start miner, can't initialize CUDA engine, code exception: CUDA_ERROR_NO_DEVICE. Is NVIDIA driver installed?

Good afternoon, I am new to this and have been trying to find an answer for 2 days. I wanted to see if I could find it before posting it here. I am setting up my first rig and trying to run using an RX 480 card until my 3080’s ship. The problem I am having is the following.

Error: “Can’t start miner, can’t initialize CUDA engine, code exception: CUDA_ERROR_NO_DEVICE. Is NVIDIA driver installed?”

The card is getting power and fans are running. flashed bios on card and currently running Drivers: 460.91.03.

Any help would be welcomed.

For Future Reference, and since you are expecting 3080 cards - once you start setting up the flight sheet - pay attention on the miner - there are nvidia and amd only and there are some that work for both cards.
My personal opinion is, if you use nvidia - Trex is one of the best! if you use AMD - phoenixminer or teamredminer…
also make sure you do your research about OC settings - in order to make sure your cards are running efficient! And dont go for max MH, you need your card to run cool, so you can use it longer :slight_smile:
