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

BSOD driver overrun stack buffer - ntoskrnl.exe

Hi All,

I have built this PC about 2months ago all was fine until I started to get BSOD every few minutes. I thought it was my ssd msata OCZ NOCTI causing the problem. Anyway I ran a memtest on both RAM sticks for about 4 hrs each, I have done this twice, with no errors.

I decided to do a fresh install to the ssd and it would BSOD on the windows install. I had the bios set to AHCI for the ssd. I pulled the ssd on attached my WD caviar black set the bios to IDE and it blue screened once on install. I tried again and install went fine.

I ran prime95 for 36hrs and an intel burnintest all worked no problem no errors. Today the BSOD has returned and I have no idea why. I updated the bios to the latest still happening. I was hoping you knowledgeable people could look at my dump files to see if there is anything wrong. I am starting to think the my mobo is the problem.

Please remove this program because programs like these are known to cause problems. Even BSODs as it modifies the registry.

WD SES Device USB Device	USBSTOR\OTHER&VEN_WD&PROD_SES_DEVICE&REV_1020\574343305430353632353236&1	The drivers for this device are not installed.
I'd suggest finding the correct drivers for this external device.

Some of the dump files are blaming hardware. So to knock that problem out of the way, please follow the steps below:

BugCheck 0x124

warning   Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

For your hardware stop 0x124 crash, read through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try and use the following hardware checks to supplement that link.
  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • If you have an SSD, make sure the following are up to date:
    • SSD firmware
    • BIOS Version
    • Chipset Drivers
    • Hard disk controller drivers/SATA drivers
    • If you have a Marvell IDE ATA/ATAPI device, make sure the drivers are up to date from the Intel site or Marvell site and not from your motherboard/vendor support site.

  • Run all but the advanced tests with SeaTools for HDDs.
    SeaTools for Windows

    SeaTools for DOS
  • Monitor temperatures during the following tests.
    Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures.
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

    For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Hey I run tests all yesterday the memtest+86, burn in tests, updated all the drivers. I did not do the GPU tests as I am just using onboard. Everything passed temps were stable under load at 50deg I ran prime95 all night no worries.

I am starting to think my mobo is the culprit anyway I have upped the lastest BSOD minidump can you please look.

From what i have been researching about this error, it could be your Motherboard. But try updating your BIOS to the latest version

it could be your Motherboard
looks that way it can't be anything else thing this stage. This is the second faulty Gigabyte board I've had and the last!!

I did update the bios one of the first things I did when the BSOD started. I have actually now reset to factory defaults!! Still there.

It keeps blaming your intel drivers. So uninstall and do a fresh install of the drivers. You said you got a blue screen as you were doing a fresh install of Windows 7 to your SSD? If so the problem could be your SSD.

You mean a clean install of windows 7 altogether or can I do just the drivers? I have ditched the solid state altogether the install atm is on the WD sata. I was getting alot more BSOD with the SSD which is why I pulled it think that was the problem.
