Hello, I'll go right ahead to the details.

GPU model: Zotac GTX 1050
OS: Windows 7

Problem:
-Keeps crashing a few seconds after startup (Logging into windows 7 admin account)
Here is the error from the minidump file.


I've done multiple troubleshooting steps and here are the results so far.

Solution 1.
Clean and up-to-date installation of Nvidia drivers.
Remarks: Up to date drivers seems to crash more often.

Solution 2.
Rolling back to old driver (from 400-ish to 350-ish)
Remarks: Less bsod crashes compared to the newest drivers but still crashes

Solution 3.
Reinstalled the GPU on the PCIe slot.
Remarks:
No changes.

Overall Remarks:
Right now, I am using the Intel Integrated Graphics (i5 3330) and no crashes at all.

My conclusion:
I'd assume that my card is faulty (would i be right though?)

What are your thoughts guys? Thank you so much.

Update:
Attempted to salvage it again by cleaning the pci-express connector with a cloth applied with isoprophyl alcohol and somehow it booted without any problems. Might stress test and see how it does.

Update 2:
Somehow no crashes after cleaning the PCI-Express connector, so in short the crashes were caused by somehow dirty connector (?). I guess thats it.
