    System crashing and freezing with nvidia cards

    Recently got a EVGA 1050 ti FTW to replace my R9 270X which died a while ago.

    The card comes in and immediately after installing it I get power on issues. Eventually I manage to get into Windows. But then Windows crashes. The machine will power on for a few seconds then shut off. Or it might not power on at all.

    Because I have two desktops, I just swap the 1050 TI into my other PC and it runs fine. Doesn't seem like the card is the issue. Anyway, for kicks, I order a Gigabyte GTX 1050 OC 2GB just to see if maybe my system doesn't like EVGA or otherwise needs a less power hungry card (not that 1050 ti is power hungry). That, and the mobo, like the card, is from Gigabyte. So it made sense to me to try.

    Okay, so the GTX 1050 arrives and I pop it in. The computer seems to boot normally. But within 5 minutes, Windows freezes. Then it goes straight to reboot. It will skip POST (even though I have fast boot disabled) and go straight to the sign in. Rinse, repeat.


    1) This isn't the first time the machine has rejected nvidia cards specifically. Had an EVGA GTX 960 I had to return because the display drivers kept crashing. Now these 1050 and 1050 ti's don't work. The only discrete GPU that's ever worked in this is R9 270X.

    2) The machine runs fine in Safe Mode. And for the first few moments of Windows being online, everythings okay. It's only after I start trying to do anything that it crashes. One thing that is sure fire guaranteed to crash it is opening Chrome. But this generally applies to any app, really.

    3) I've tested different nvidia drivers, updated mobo firmware, updated Windows, booted to safe mode, tried different video cards; reseated the GPU. It's made no difference.

    4) The iGPU on the A10 runs fine. The computer runs great on the integrated graphics.

    Error Codes:

    Error: The NVIDIA LocalSystem Container service terminated with the following error: A generic command executable returned a result that indicates failure. Event ID: 7023

    Warning: The local adapter does not support an important Low Energy controller state to support peripheral mode. The minimum required supported state mask is 0x491f7fffff, got 0x1fffffff. Low Energy peripheral role functionality will not be available. Event ID: 34.

    AMD A10 APU Kaveri 7850K,
    Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI,
    16GB Kingston Fury (2133),
    Silverstone SFX PSU 550W
    ITX Case Raven RVZ01B (requires PCI riser/adapter to connect GPU to mobo)
    EVGA GTX 960, 1050 TI; Gigabyte 1050 OC 2GB

    This is a mini-ITX system so my troubleshooting options are rather limited due to specialty parts and case constraints. Thoughts, folks? Tell me I'm not crazy.
