    BSOD, Crash, and auto Reboot. Been trying for a month now, help!


    I've been running into issues trying to enable and keep my SLI stable on my PC. After enabling SLI, whenever I restart I'll be facing a BSOD "DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER" and the only way for me to get back into Windows 10 is to access the restore point.

    After trying pretty much everythings, here's the things that are OKAY and NOT OKAY.


    • Running either one 1080 by itself (Benchmark, Gaming stable 24hours.)
    • Running both 1080s, but without SLI bridge (Device Manger detects them correctly.)
    • Changed to another 2 different branded 1080s in SLI (Benchmark, Gaming stabled 24hours.)
    • Running 32gb DDR4-3200 rams (No problem)

    • Connecting SLI Bridge (PC would boot fine the 1st time, can run benchmark/games. But after rebooting the PC would run into the BSOD code above indefinitely.)
    • Tried drivers 376.60 / 376.13 / 372.19 (Tried almost every recent driver I could, but PC still wont boot after enabling SLI, running into the BSOD code above indefinitely.)

    I have scoured through this forum, and it seems like for my issue I need to post the following files for y'all to peruse through.
    • Nvidia System Information File
    • Driver Verifier dmp. file (Have it on my PC, website won't let me upload as an attachment.)

    Tried fixing it myself for 3 weeks now, and have since passed to the guys at my local pc show for 1 week, we're all stuck and can't figure out whether its a hardware or software issue. Figured I should give you guys a try, thanks so much in advance.

    Just went through all my .dmp files, and found out in every single one of them nvlddmkm.sys was the cause. If I'm not mistaken this is one of Nvidia's driver eh?

    spare info about your System,

    Win10, Build?
    Mainboard? may be an X99 Board-Typ.
    SLI-Ready Board?
    PSU has enough power to drive both? ~1KW

    your nVidia output shows

    >> Bus: PCI Express x8 Gen3 <<
    i would have expected PCIe x16 Gen3 for both Cards here.

    but a Dump would be fine anyway, external linked may be ok too.

    • Facultative step: Retrieve System Information, using speccy
      1. Download Speccy portable - actual version 1.29.714 (click), unzip/decompress it and put it on your desktop.
      2. When the program opens, it will retrieve some information regarding your system.
      3. Once it's done, select the File menu and choose Publish snapshot. Answer Yes to the confirmation message.
      4. On the next screen that comes up, choose the Copy to Clipboard button and paste this link in your next reply.
      5. (Or attach the log here, if you prefer to not publish it for some reason)
