    BSOD during Skype Call

    I've had BSOD's before a clean install of Windows 8.1. Ran diagnostics and updated drivers and even did a memtest (6 hours 10 tests) no errors.

    After clean install... no problems for 3 days and I've recorded everything I've added or installed in a journal.

    As soon as I jumped on a Skype call I got a BSOD. Couldn't catch the error... it was overstack buffer of some sort.

    Before the clean install I had BSOD's occur from Gaming and Skype.

    Any ideas? All drivers are up to date and I don't seem to have any hardware issues because of all the tests I've run.

    Could updating these cause problems:

    PCI Simple Communication Controller
    SM Bus Controller

    Here's what was removed and now things work:

    I would like to keep the other and delete this one. The other has my files uploaded to be analyzed, but unfortunately I haven't received any help on that post.

    I will close this thread. Thank you!
