If it doesn't tell you which specific driver has overstepped it's boundaries, then you will need to uninstall and reinstall device drivers one at a time until you find it, and this doesn't guarantee that the driver won't glitch again in the future due to an improper or corrupt registry file embedded on the hard drive. The best way to assure that the driver won't do this again is to reset the computer by reformatting and reloading the operating system.

Have you tried running a chkdsk /f from the command prompt? It sounds like you could have a driver issue or a memory issue. Chkdsk might solve the issue, might not.

If chkdsk doesn't work try removing unnecessary devices in safe mode under control panel/system/device manager. Do this 1 at a time and try booting then, if you successfully boot you know which device or device driver you need to repair.

How to get to system restore on Windows 10 with no boot screen


Try booting in Safe Mode (See: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12376/windows-10-start-your-pc-in-safe-mode). This should bypass problematic programs and drivers. Alternatively, if you have a Windows 10 CD, you can boot with it and choose the option to repair which will allow you to select restore points.

Keep in mind that if you have a failing hard drive or another significant hardware problem, making software changes, like repairing Windows won't fix it. The part needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps.

When I try to open Call of duty it apperas the error 998 and the message buffer overrun detected


Any time I've seen this error appear when playing a game it is caused by a bad graphics driver. I would suggest going to the website of the retailer that your graphics devices comes from and updating to the most recent driver and giving it a shot.

Many different things can cause buffer overruns. This is a common attack that hackers use to exploit bad C code. In this case, since it's a video game...I'm going to say graphics driver.

You can actually see an example of the same behavior here:

Buffer Override Detected


http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-11184-0.html?forumID=49&threadID=172408&messageID=1754446

A buffer is a place to store data. You have a buffer overrun when to much data is sent to that place. It is used a lot by people who write virus programs and try to start a virus. It would be a good idea to check your entire drive for virus. The above link explains the same thing.
