Notes

  • The Stop error message varies depending on the configuration of the computer's system failure options. For more information about how to configure system failure options, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

  • Not all "Stop 0x0000007F" errors are caused by the problem that is described in this article.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of a stack overflow in a Windows kernel-mode thread. A stack overflow is caused by a function that consumes more space on a thread stack than is available. Windows generates a Stop error to prevent possible corruption of data that is adjacent to the thread stack location.
