As documentation of OpenCV 2.4.9 suggested, I recompiled OpenCV to enable CUDA.

I found compiling was successful and all related unit test were passed by running opencv_test_gpu.exe. But when running opencv_perf_gpu.exe, it made my GPU crashed. I found following test was the one that made it happen. Of course, all tests after the test would fail. I wonder if this is something I can fix in my part or a bug in OpenCV. FYI, my system information follows.


I found my answer here. For some reason, For 32 bit Windows worked for me although my OS is 64 bit version. Here is what worked.

1. Exit all Windows based programs.
2. Click Start, type regedit in the Search box, and then double-click regedit.exe from the results above. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
3. Browse to and then click the following registry subkey:
4. On the Edit menu, click New, and then select the following registry value from the drop-down menu specific to your version of Windows (32 bit, or 64 bit):

For 32 bit Windows

a. Select DWORD (32-bit) value.
b. Type TdrDelay as the Name and click Enter.
c. Double-click TdrDelay and add 8 for the Value data and click OK.

For 64 bit Windows 

a. Select QWORD (64-bit) value.
b. Type TdrDelay as the Name and click Enter.
c. Double-click TdrDelay and add 8 for the Value data and clickOK.
5. Close the registry editor and then restart your computer for the changes to take affect.

The first failed test:

I am guessing your card is not yet found by OpenCV. Are you sure making the project went completely fine? Can run the cuda perf tests here perfectly myself. Only the tests that need the extra data fail because I havent collected it.

@StevenPuttemans I found my answer. The crash was because of Timeout Detection and Recovery in WIndows. After adjusting the time, it worked without any problem. Thanks anyway.

Could you add a detail answer yourself explaining which steps to take to configure this Timeout Detection? It could be usefull for others and feature users!

@StevenPuttemans I think I've already done that in my question. As I don't have enough reputation, I can't create my own answer.

You have enough karma now ;) an answer is more pure then all in the question so please edit it.
