Windows 7: blue screen overriding buffer

blue screen overriding buffer

While trying to play a game I get from time to time a blue screen saying "a driver has overran a stack-based buffer".
The blue screen I get rarely, mostly the game closes or the game is not responding.
Thank you in advance for your help into solving this problem.

Hi IoanaB,

Welcome to the 7forums :)

Please visit Windows Update and install every update available, it may take a couple of times to get them all.

Please check ASUS for BIOS updates and install version 2603.

Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver, you can use this tutorial to do so NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems

Overriding MAX_PATH
