BSOD (IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL) in CS:GO

Hi. One week ago I bought a new graphics card (RX 550 2GB) and these days I tried playing CS:GO and suddenly in matches or even in lobbies I was getting the BSOD with this stop code: IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL. This happened at least 10 times in 2 days because I was trying to solve it but no results were made. I tried the Driver Verifier and Windows Memory Diagnostic too but without success. I want to say that I've tried 3 different versions of the AMD Adrenalin 2020 driver but still no results. This thing happened 2 times before installing the new graphics card but without getting BSOD (the game was only crashing without any log file) and now is happening much more frequently and with BSOD too, so I don't think it's the RX 550's fault.

 

RIG:

Ryzen 3 2200G;  RX 550 2GB Overclocked;  12GB RAM 2666MHz Overclocked;  1TB Seagate BarraCuda

 

PS: I tried the game with and without OC-ing the RX 550 but the results were the same.

 

 

 

EDIT: I found the solution. First, I reinstalled Steam and all Steam apps (including CS:GO), reset the BIOS to its default and then applied the RAM overclock again and now it is working fine, even better than expected.
