KLD nvidia.ko: depends on kernel - not available or version mismatch
I have tried other driver version( i.e. 190.42, 195.22).
But I have same error message.
Version 190.36 is not from latest ports, it is 185.18.36. Do you mean direct install from nvidia site?
Try to set 'nvidia_load="YES"' in /boot/loader.conf and reboot. Then kldstat should show the loaded module nvidia.ko.
