  1. Hi, heres the brief explanation :D


    I played Half Life 2 for ages, with no probs whatever, anyway, i thought id try and have a go at Counter Strike Source, as it came free on disc.

    after playing for about 4 mins, the PC suddenly rebooted.

    now at first i thought it was just a power surge, but it happened continually. I reinstalled game, but to no avail

    so then i just didnt play game thinking it was an error. But i downloaded another Steam game yesterday, and after loading up, GUess what !!, same problem :(

    my m8 suggested i post here, and i have attached the .dmp file that windows created.

    hope u can help, u all sound like PC Tech Dudes :D

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your minidump crashes at LVcKap.sys. This is part of the drivers for your Logitech webcam and is a known issue.

    See HERE for a possible solution.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
