On My windows 10 I just removed broadcom network driver software and received a blue screen of death..

driver_overran_stack_buffer BSOD

Then when I rebooted again it started OK.

What did it mean? I don't think it even restarted it just BSOD'd during the process...? 🤔

The buffer overrun limit is designed to stop drivers sucking all the resource out of the system. If the buffer overran then the system shut down as a precaution. If it keeps happening then you should try and locate a newer version of the driver.
