Easy Anti-Cheat causing BSOD I suspect Graphics Card driver

When I try to play Apex Legends, Battlefield 2042, or Elden Ring I get a BSOD when I launch the game. Easy Anti-Cheat splash screen comes up and then it crashes after the loading bar fills up. I have been testing  and trying all common solutions. My drivers are up to date and I have done a fresh install of Windows 11. I was able to play these games fine a couple months ago. I ran Prime95 for an hour and a half and had no errors with memory. EA says BSOD is not their problem and I haven't heard anything from Easy Anti-Cheat Support in over two weeks.

I don't have any issues running other games or just using my PC in general. 

The error message on the BSOD sometimes changes but I usually get "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal." Windows and my drivers should all be up to date.

Here are my hardware specs:



Has anyone else had a similar issue to this? Is there any other troubleshooting I can be doing? Could my graphics card  be bad and if so is there a way I can tell if it is?

I appreciate any help.
