  1. i get random reboots occasionally(once every few days, usually while playing a game)

    this time i finnaly decided to check the event log and it shows

    so i remembered people posting dumps here from along time ago when i was rebuilding my computer and it turned out i had a faulty motherboard, so i figured id give it a shot again, so here it is.

    thanks in advance.

    That crash is caused by XDva024.sys. I can't find any info on this file. Do a search on your system to see if you can find out if it belongs to anything. It might be an infection as it's only two weeks old.

    Probably caused by : XDva024.sys ( XDva024+ffa )

    I agree with peterdiva, that may be an infection/rootkit.

    Please visit this link http://virusscan.jotti.org/
    * Click the Browse... button
    * Navigate to the following file C:\windows\system32\XDva024.sys
    * Click Open
    * Please let me know the results.

    If that doesn`t give you any conclusive info, do the following.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions in Step11 only

    Then, go and read this thread HERE and post a HJT log as an attachment into this thread.

    Regards Howard :)

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Search your system for the file, then submit it for testing over at Jotti`s.

    still not there, im scanning with rootkitrevealer right now.
    i just remembered, when it happened i was playing a game and my antivirus started updating(i can tell cause my framerate dropped and the harddrive was buzzing)

    though i still cant find the suspicious file.

    heres the 3 other dumps from the times its rebooted since my last reformat, maybe theyre crashing on the same file or might have some other clues.
