ParameterDescription

Memory address referenced

2

0: Read

If the driver responsible for the error can be identified, its name is printed on the blue screen and stored in memory at the location (PUNICODE_STRING) KiBugCheckDriver.

Cause

The driver allocated n bytes of memory from the special pool. Subsequently, the system referenced more than n bytes from this pool. This usually indicates a system-driver synchronization problem.

For information about the special pool, consult the Driver Verifier section of the Windows Driver Kit.

Remarks

This cannot be protected by a try - except handler -- it can only be protected by a probe.
