    Interesting dump.

    While the dump suggest that root cause is a disk hardware fault. I am not buying it.

    can you share couple more dumps ? looking at more dumps can explain if the problem is random and may suggest an hardware problem.

    the crash it self is a result of directX drivers which make me suspect that the issue relates to the display adaptor or its drivers, but I cant tell with only one dump.

    I would suggest runnig harddisk tests to verify the disk is fine.

    my first impression is that this is a software problem and not an hardware. couple of the dumps here happens in the same place which is rare when it is relates to hardware.

    4 of the minidumps are crashing on one or more symantec products. I would suggest you to remove ANY of the symantec products and verify if it is solving your issue.

    Let us know if it does and we could then try and understand exactly what is faulting here.

    if you still have problems after removing the symantec products, try sending new minidumps without the symantec products.
