    BSODing constantly - Error: DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER


    Title has the latest one but I also got one the other day that says

    Error: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M

    NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 461.40

    I tried rolling back my graphics driver after getting that one and I didn't get it again but got a new one.

    All help is greatly appreciated.

    If after enabling verifier you have issues starting computer use safe boot to disable driver verifier as explained here:

    Driver Verifier-- tracking down a mis-behaving driver.

    Good suggestion by zebal. I would also suggest that you Backup your data etc FIRST, just in case!

    Also, here is a TenForums Tutorial that will show you how to Boot into Safe Mode . . .

    I hope this helps.

    I forgot to say in my post, after driver verifier generates some BSOD's please share fresh BOSD logs again:

    Awesome! Thanks for the suggestion. Will creating a restore point be sufficient or should I just create a complete image back up? I use EaseUS todo back up regularly with weekly backups but I can do a fresh back up just in case.

    Will the driver verifier tell me what is the driver with the issue or will it just create another DMP log file that I need to upload here? I've embarrassingly never used it before and would like to add it to my toolbox at work.

    Restore point is enough to revert changes.

    But as the tutorial highlights, if you don't have another working computer near you it's not bad idea to have bootable Windows 10 USB ready to restore system:
    Download Windows 10

    bootable USB is needed only if all of the following is true:
    1. you don't have another computer or laptop
    2. you have issues disabling driver verifier
    3. can't boot into safe mode to disable verifier

    Following tutorial [Option 1] will help to create it:
    Create Bootable USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 10

    Issues with driver verifier are very rare, but having all tools in place when needed is not bad.

    System Restore is not reliable enough to rely on, it may work but it also may not work, please do an EASEUS TODO backup then proceed with debug.

    Damn you're right, I should of. Luckily I was able to boot back up. Now I couldn't get a BSOD per se but my computer refuse to boot back up after I initiated the verifier and rebooted it to actually initialize it. It kept going into automatic repair so I had to boot into safe mode and disable the verifier. Can you still use the DMP files?

    If you had no BSOD while verifier was enabled? then no new DMP files were made, no need to re-upload old ones.

    Yeah, I just noticed that. All of the files in the minidump folder were old. Any idea why my PC wouldn't boot after I turned on the verifier?
