I'm on 64-bit Windows 7 with GTX 1050Ti onboard (latest drivers installed). I can't turn on the GPU processor acceleration. Any clue what's the problem and how can I fix it?

You are using Windows 7 which even Microsoft abandoned.  Adobe did the same as far a GPU image processing support and will probably abandon it totally in the near future.

 

You listed the minimum system requirements to use GPU for display.  You should have looked further down in the FAQ to see this

So why Windows 7 is included in the MSR to use GPU when it's not possible and you need Win10?

One gripe I have with Adobe is they often lack clarity. Support for Windows 7 comes to mind. They will say Lightroom Classic works with Windows 7, BUT, they do not mean perfectly, they do not mean all features, they do not mean absolutly 100%. Very much like the minimum RAM requirement, LRC will run, but will not run at all well on many rigs without 16 GB. (and basicaly ignores more)

 

So use GPU may or may not be an option on WIN 7, but it may come up Basic Support at best, perhaps no support. And basic support is fairly close to no support. Do not run at 4K if it states Basic support (thise not doing a lot of adjustment brushes might pull off)

Shouldn't they remove Windows 7 in recommended system to use GPU display as you all agree that it's impossible to use it?2020-04-15 03_04_26-Adobe Lightroom Classic GPU FAQ — Mozilla Firefox_1.png

So number 1 problem is your OS, does your rig not support Windows 10?

 

And lack of DirectX, oh, some mods by Adobe to backtrack and still work in OpenGL occured, but not so much for use GPU.

 

One thing to look at, and this can imorove results under use GPU, well, it can fir Windows 10, Windows 7, not so sure, actualy fairly sure not:

The GPU FAQ you are quoting was published in August 2019 when Win 7 was still supported by Microsoft.  Windows 7 is now officially unsupported by Microsoft, at least for most people who are not paying extra.  Update to Windows 10 and your card may work although there is no guarantee.  I am sure most companies are going to ditch Windows 7 support in their new software releases.

BTW, looking at most Adobe documentation online is a poor experience as they have not done a very good job of keeping things updated.
