Installing CUDA

I’m trying to re-install CUDA package after first initial install failed (sorry to say, but I aborted first install by Cntrl+C while it was doing someing, not sure what). But now nothing I do helps. I reinstalled julia, (including removal of .julia folder), but still having the same issue below. Please help

I just ran into a similar issue. Code was running fine a few days ago, not sure what changed…

Problem with your system. Error 999 is out of our hands; if you’re on linux you can try checking dmesg or rebooting. This often happens when upgrading the NVIDIA driver without rebooting.

With new nvidia driver CUDA is back working. Thanks a lot!
