  1. Recently I got a bsod with the message talking about buffer overflow.
    I haven't really downloaded anything that could potentially be a virus, so it might be an issue with the drivers?
    If someone could help my diagnose/fix the problem, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Post any minidumps created by going to C:\windows\minidump and select all the .dmp files. Right-click sending these files to a compressed(zipped)folder. Upload this folder as a file to your post

    DRIVER_OVERAN_STACK_BUFFER but the file list is totally empty. What are you doing with the computer when the BSOD happens and how often does it occur?

    It only seems to have happened once, but when it did I was browsing through youtube or something of the sort.
    The problem might of fixed itself as it's not happening anymore/

    Okay, good. If you get another BSOD you can post it here again and we can see what it tells us
