Hi Deepak,

All of the attached DMP files are of the VIDEO_DXGKRNL_FATAL_ERROR (113) bug check.

This indicates that the Microsoft DirectX graphics kernel subsystem has detected a violation.

^^ Very small and uninformative call stack, only telling us that the Direct X Kernel called into a critical Watchdog error, which caused the bugcheck.

--------------------

1. Ensure you have the latest video card drivers. If you are already on the latest video card drivers, uninstall and install a version or a few versions behind the latest to ensure it's not a latest driver only issue. If you have already experimented with the latest video card driver and many previous versions, please give the beta driver for your card a try.

2. Remove and replace McAfee with Windows 8's built-in Windows Defender for temporary troubleshooting purposes as it's likely causing conflicts:
