Question Windows Can't Detect My GTX 1050

Hi, I just built a new PC and had everything installed from scratch. When trying to install drivers for my GTX 1050, I get the error below.
The specs for my PC from dxdiag are also posted. The mobo seems to be ok and I've tried everything except for reflashing the GPU bios since I'm a bit wary of bricking it.

Any help would be appreciated!

That was the first thing I tried, both through Experience and directly downloading. Neither worked. The error I got was along the lines of “Not compatible with this version of Windows” (or something like that) even though it should’ve been.

Do you have any security that keeps installing by itself? Maybe try disabling it or uninstalling it completly
Nope, it’s a completely clean install of Windows from a bootable usb. I ordered a different GPU to see if that’ll work, if not iI honestly don’t know what to do.

Update: I just plugged in my GPU to my friends PC and it was working fine. When I got back home, I tried plugging the GPU into another PCIe slot but still got the same results. I moved my WiFi Adapter from the small PCIe slot into both 16x ones and it worked fine. Could there be some sort of incompatibility between my GPU and Mobo?

I didn't state this earlier but I have a Zotac GTX 1050 2GB Mini and a ASUS TUF B450-Plus Gaming Mobo.
