I had the same issue since 2018 like clockwork every 5 to 6 months I open my pc and there is no signal and everytime I had to open the case remove the GPU and replug it then it works pretty much twice to 3 times per year since then I have no idea what's causing that but the last time yesterday was different I had GPU usage stutter jumping all around the place from 0 to 100 to 50 it was random and caused massive stutter in audio and video which made everything unplayable and I fixed it by removed the gpu and plugging it again.
GTX 1050Ti and it doesn't need any power pins btw.

Since turning off your PC or even just putting it on standby cuts off all power to the GPU, the only extra thing re-seating the GPU does is making the edge contact scrape against the slot connector which would remove corrosion. For corrosion to interfere with the GPU's operation in only 5-6 months, you would need to have a pretty nasty environment such as high moisture from salty sea spray.

Shaking off conductive dust in the process of re-seating may also be a possibility.

Checking the connector and that area is usually pretty clean not sign of anything that terrible

The time period makes me wonder if its associated with a windows 10 version update, as they happen every 6 months or so (or did until this year).
Interesting but I only update manually I have them disabled
