Some older motherboards were not able to supply the required 60-70 watts via PCI-e slot that some GPUs require...(not sure of 1030's power requirement off-hand, but, I know most do not have a supplemental cable from PSU?)

Perhaps the PSU is old and /or weak, not able to stand rapid 30-50W fluctuations in power?

Of course, it could simply be a bad GPU, but, if that's the case, those symptoms should appear if/when that GPU is used/tested in another build...; find someone using integrated graphics that has a PCI-e slot and is eager to test a GPU for you...
