Video_TDR_Failure atikmpag.sys BSOD error, but *only* when I move my chair?

My eGPU setup has performed stellarly for the past half year (ever since I built it), but as of 2 days ago, it freezes or gives me the aforementioned BSOD when I move my chair around. Other than that, it works just fine. It likely has something to do with the vibrations caused by the chair's movement.

I have tried reconnecting all the cables, but it still seems to happen. I have downgraded/reverted back to using my laptop without the GPU for the time being, as I am scared of damaging the hardware.

My two best guesses are:

The USB 3.0 cable from the PCE164P-N03 VER 006C to the mPCIe slot (which previously held the wifi card) has a small kink in it, it seems a little bent from its angle. Perhaps I just need to replace this cable, although I might as well just buy a new PCE164P-N03 VER 006C. They're cheap.

Or maybe it's the HDMI cable from the GPU to my Samsung monitor? It seems like it's kind of loose inside the HDMI port. I can still kind of wiggle it around inside the GPU.

Any idea what could be causing it? Thanks for your help!

 

My setup:

MSI GE70 2PC Apache laptop

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4710HQ

eGPU: Sapphire RX 590 Nitro+ Special Edition

RAM: 16 GB DDR3L

OS: Windows 10 (updated)

Interface: mPCIe (using the PCE164P-N03 VER 006C)

Display: Samsung C27F390 curved monitor

Hey, reporting in to share how I got it working. Maybe this will help someone.

I swapped out my old blue PCE164P-N03 VER 006C for a new red one on the 7th of May. After that, the problem went away for a week, before it started again on the 14th of May. I decided to reseat the GPU, and that fixed it. I think the GPU slowly got loose in the adapter from vibrations.
