This may not be a cause of the GPU. Was your Windows an upgrade from 7? Mine does this and I upgraded from 7. I'm still looking for a fix and Microsoft won't own up to this being an issue.

I upgraded to 10 from Windows 8 which was not an upgrade. About ready to go get a new card, can't find an answer anywhere. Maybe try Radeon.

Well the having the 1050 card in causes the computer to restart at least 2 times per day, Found a Fix, open computer case, take out GTX 1050, throw it on a shelf, throw it in the trash, paper weight, etc, what ever works for you,. Then install AMD Radeon RX 560, close cover, push the power button, No more restarts.

Well since you did no diagnostic work beyond asking on a forum, that fix is fine.

There were no answers from anyone that would know, no help after looking everywhere, this was the last stop, and nothing here. so that was the best option, Still running fine with the new card.
