Since it was working with the identical Mathematica code, the simplest thing to try is to reset Mathematica initialization files, in case one was damaged. (An ordinary re-installation does not affect these.)

If that does not cure it, assume there is a problem with the CUDA setup on the computer. (Automatic OS update or something similar.)

* Restart the computer
* Reinstall the most recent NVIDIA drivers
* Reinstall the most recent CUDALink paclet
(CUDAResourcesInstall[], or
* Restart the computer
* Restart Mathematica
