Help needed with a lenovo 330s ryzen 5 BSOD

Posted 1st Jan
I bought a refurbished lenovo on ebay
It has a ryzen 5 2500 cpu, 12gb ram and a 256gb ssd
It's got a great spec and condition is excellent.
The problem is when I play a 4k YouTube video after about 15 minutes the fan kicks in and the laptop freezes. It then comes up with the blue screen of death and the code dpc violation

Is there some way to stop this from happening?
It's got all the latest Windows updates and Windows checked for driver updates for the processor and says I have the latest one installed.
Can anyone tell me if there is a fix for this or is the laptop just not worth keeping and I should return it?
I'd like to keep the laptop as it was a great deal but I could return it for a refund
Thanks in advance

most common for dpc watchdog violations on internet points to firmware most commonly on ssd.

Would advice to check the firmware on both your motherboard and the ssd you have in the machine has the latest

The one machine I had that on I had to not only update the firmware but reload windows for it to stop completely - interestingly that machine it only started after a windows update in first place.
