Windows 7: BSOD Random, DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER, 0x000000f7

BSOD Random, DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER, 0x000000f7

Hello there,

I just registered to this forum with hope someone here could help me with my blue screen I can't resolve on my own.

This BSOD happed randomly out of nowhere, when I was away from PC in different room, but my brother noticed it.

There was few programs running, mostly Chrome with like 10-12 tabs, some MS Excel I guess ? I believe the dump file and other logs will tell you more. It's attached as requested

I just found that this issue could be a result of potential hacking attack on my computer. If so, maybe it's time to reinstall system. Also I'm experiencing random "Alt tabbing" to different windows which I could not resolve yet also, even after killing the most programs on startup and background I found useless and unknown.

Should you need any more info I will gladly provide it.
Appreciate all help, thanks in advance

Hello AeroSvk and welcome to 7forums!

The BSOD was caused by your graphics card. I've noticed that your drivers are a bit old, so I would recommend that you update them by going here:
Drivers | GeForce

Cheers, Boris

Oh, rly ?

How did you find that out, if it's easy to explain I would love to learn something from the logs

And yeah I noticed the update on Nvidia Experience, yet ignored it because of lazyness, thank you, will update right away.
I'm glad that it's not the uncomfy hacking issue I mentioned, yet I still might reinstall the system in near future just to give it a bit of fresh flow.

Thanks again for your help

Oh yes.

Well the most easiest way would be to open up the text file called "drivers" and scroll down to the driver you wanna check out in your case it would be "nvlddmkm" and then you scroll to the right until you see the date of the driver.

Most guys that are troubleshooting BSODs here use a program by Windows that loads those .dmp files and from there we get similar stats that are in the drivers text file!

Yeah really no problem, happy to help, will keep my thumbs up hoping that your issue has been resolved! Boris

But how do you know the connection between older GPU driver (where older means few weeks old) and that specific BSOD ?

Or is it just a wild guess that this driver is not the newest, it COULD be him causing it ?

Thanks for your help and understanding

Well I'll show the screenshot of the Windows Debugging Tools window.

The highlighted text shows the driver that is causing the BSOD, of course it varies.

Oh, that just changes everything and is "the proof" I was looking for

Thank you very much for showing me that

I'll mark this one as solved

(PS: I have another thread open about a laptop with random BSODs, could you run it through that debbuger, becuase I have no idea what kills that laptop on regular random basis, it's this one.
BSOD random, repeating, 0x000000f4

Your help would be greatly appreciated as you are obviously at home with these things, much more than I am
Thx
