Windows 7: BSOD driver overrun stack buffer - ntoskrnl.exe

OK memtest the ram all day both sticks by themselves in each slot, no errors. I tried brand new sata cables, still BSOD. Two different HDD less than a month old still BSOD. It crashes on the windows 7 install disc just after it loads the windows files.

I have only a HDD drive attached, onboard gpu and ram nothing else. It has to be the motherboard as there is nothing else it could be now. I am going to but a new board next week and see what happens.

Hello FatsWaler and welcome to Sevenforums.

Issues on the Windows 7 installation disc may indicate a few things.
  • If the manufacture asked you to burn their installation disc from their website for instance, make sure you select a slow burning speed. By that, you'd avoid having bad sectors on the disc you're booting from.
    • Where did you get your disc from?
    • Also, are there any specific scratches on your installation disc?
  • Have you checked your temperatures overall?
    • You might be able to monitor this in BIOS.
    • Bios key depends on your machine, it's usually F2, Delete, Tab, F10.
  • Any unnecessary devices that are plugged in your computer should be removed.
  • Did you wipe the HD with Diskpart Clean Command?
  • Also try to install Windows with half the size of RAM.
    • In that regard plug out the number of sticks to half the size.
  • Reset BIOS.

Best Regards,
Frederik.

1. disc supplied as OEM from supplier. No scratches.
2.Temps in bios steady at 23deg C
3. Only HDD plugged in nothing else.
4. DiskPart=NO
5. Have tried a clean install with one stick of RAM
6. Have also reset the bios.

I will wipe the drive with GParted and try again still leaning towards a bad board.

Have you tried to switch off your IDE Controller?

Also you might want to Google on this as there's thousands of topics.

Alright, have you had Driver Verifier enabled at some point? If not, here's how.

Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise.
Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature) - and create a System Repair Disc (Win7) if you don't have a full installation DVD.
You can do this by going to Start...All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc (don't forget to test the disc to make sure it works).

For Vista, you can download the repair discs from different websites. If unable to locate them, shoot me a PM and I'll point you to them.
For Win8, BSOD's are different - and we'll have to adjust how we do this with them.

Also, to ensure that you can recover, here's another couple of additional steps:
- Get to the Safe Mode menu (rapidly tap F8 just before the Windows splash screen comes up). Scroll down to and select "Disable automatic restart on System Failure"
- Get the RED information from this picture (in particular we will need the name of the file that the error occurred in):
Picture of a BSOD

Then, here's the procedure to run Driver Verifier:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "IRP Logging", "Force Pending I/O Requests" and "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next" ("Special Pool" may be able to be used depending on amount of RAM and errors being seen. In situations with small amounts of RAM, DO NOT select it),
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and locate the memory dump file. If present, turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page. Then, zip up the memory dump file(s) and upload them with your next post. If no dump files were generated, post back for further suggestions.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

If that doesn't work, post back and we'll have to see about fixing the registry entry off-line:
Code:
Delete these registry keys to stop Driver Verifier from loading (works in XP, Vista, Win7):
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDrivers
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDriverLevel
Best Regards,
Frederik.

Hey thanks for trying to help but like I stated some posts ago the pc BSOD's with the install disc even before it gets to any sort of windows loading screen. So no chance of safe mode, restore because it never even gets that far. It still think it is a bad motherboard.

If it's like just before the loading screen it can be caused by a 3rd party driver either way. I'd still suggest you to run the tool.

**UPDATE**

Ok so I installed a new motherboard, thinking that was the problem. It still BSOD with a IRQL_NOT_LESS OR_EQUAL and a STOP 0x000000A error. There is a newly formatted WD drive. When I put the Windows 7 install disc it loads to the windows splash screen and crashes.

Thought it must be the memory brought new memory one 4gb stick only still BSODs at exactly the same place. The only hardware left is the PSU or the processor itself. I don't think it is the hard drive because I have tried it on 2 seperate drives. Unlikely they are both dead.

Any suggestions? This is doing my head in!!

ps all new sata cables.

BSODs, latest saying "A driver has overrun stacked based buffer"
Hi, My computer has been BSODing as of late. Whenever it BSODs I'd hard reset it and it would BSOD again right away. This would go on for about 3-5 times and then it would be fine and run stable for 4-6 hours with no problems. The latest one said "A driver has overrun a stack based buffer"...
