Bug Check 0x111: RECURSIVE_NMI

The RECURSIVE_NMI bug check has a value of 0x00000111. This bug check indicates that a non-maskable-interrupt (NMI) occurred while a previous NMI was in progress.

Important Info If You Have Received a STOP Code


If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss.

For information about how to recover from this error, see Resolving Blue Screen errors in Windows.


This bug check occurs when there is an error in the system management interrupt (SMI) code, and an SMI interrupts an NMI and enables interrupts. Execution then continues with NMIs enabled, and another NMI interrupts the NMI in progress.
