Error in creating Cuda context with EVGA GTX 1080 Classified


I got a used EVGA GTX 1080 Classified card and I am trying to mine Ethereum using lolminer, unfortunately it does not work and I get this error message:

error in creating Cuda context

I tried other miners like T-Rex and PheonixMiner but none work. The card gets recognized correctly by HiveOS. Here are the details of the card from nvidia-info:

=== GPU 0, 01:00.0 GeForce GTX 1080 8119 MB ===
Bios, PCIE Link Gen 3, PCIE Link Width 16x
Power Limit: Min 90.0 W, Default 245.0 W, Max 320.0 W, Current 130.0 W
Frequency: GFXCore 1721 MHz, MEMCore 5005 MHz
Memory: Total 8119 MB, Used 20 MB, Free 8098 MB, Micron GDDR5X
Utilization: GPU 0 %, MEM 0 %
PSTATE P0, PWR 57.9 W, Temp 35 °C, Fan 70 %, RPM 1944 (70 %)

I have the latest HiveOS with Nvidia drive 460.91.03

Any ideas what could be wrong with that card or HiveOS? It simply seems not to want to mine…
