I am in the process of learning Blender and I am completing one of the online courses through Udemy. I am trying to render one of the projects but I keep getting same error message:

CuDA error at cuCtxcreate. Launch failed.

I just upgraded the graphics card from Nvidia GTX 1060 to Nvidia GTX 1080. I have 16Gb RAM and I'm running Windows 10. I don't think it is a graphics card issue or an issue with my system. I am going to update the RAM to 32GB when the it arrives.

Render setings are at 1920px by 1080px, 50%, samples is only set at render 66 preview 32, tiles are at 64.

It was rendering when I had the Nvidia 1060. It is only now that I upgraded to to 1080 is I get this message.

Cuda is enabled.

I hope someone might be able to help with this.
