New Gaming PC constant crashing BSOD Windows 8

  Zelnaga 12:53 PM 21 Jun 13

Hi, Ive had this PC for about a month or so now and haven't really been using it much apart from this past few weeks. Im mainly running games and I have this error that keeps cropping up. Where I get a DRIVEROVERRANSTACK_BUFFER. I notice this when im playing my games on BF3 or Borderlands 2, and its constantly giving me a blue screen.

Specs are as follows

Processor (CPU) AMD FX-8350 Eight Core CPU (4.00GHz/8MB CACHE/AM3+) Motherboard ASUS® M5A99X EVO R2.0 (DDR3, USB3.0, 6Gb/s,CrossFireX/SLI, Windows 8) Memory (RAM) 8GB KINGSTON HYPERX BEAST DUAL-DDR3 2400MHz X.M.P (2 x 4GB KIT) Graphics Card 2GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 670 - 2 DVI, HDMI, DP - 3D Vision Ready Memory - 1st Hard Disk 120GB KINGSTON V300 SSD, SATA 6 Gb (450MB/R, 450MB/W) 2nd Hard Disk 2TB 3.5" SATA-III 6GB/s HDD 7200RPM 64MB CACHE

Currently im running Windows 8 Pro

I thought this might have been the graphics drivers, so I uninstalled the latest drivers, and tried a previous driver. Still the same problem. I uninstalled the GPU driver and did a new install of the current graphics driver. Still the same problem.

(All the drivers I got were fron Nvidia website)

I tried a new O/S install (my current was W8) to W7. Even that was still giving me the same problems, so I reverted back from W8 (thus doing two complete reinstalls) and still getting the same problems. This is becoming frustrating as the main purpose for this rig was to play games.

Ive been doing some research on this dump files but still as of yet cant seem to read it. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it!

Kind Regards

You could try using BlueScreenView to look at the minidump files.

Its usually the display driver causing the issue.

Hi Ive done as instructed and posted the results below. Seems its due to bad graphics drivers? Ive already done a clean install a few times and even rolled back to the GPU drivers from a previous versions but still wielding the same results?

OK, it looks like a hardware problem but not necessarily a driver problem as you are getting diferent error messages.

Tracking it down can be a pain. As your chip does not have integrated graphics it will be difficult to discover if you have a problem with your current GPU unless you happen to have a spare?

You can also run memtest to check for errors with your RAM.

Try turning Acceleration down in Display Properties
