The STOP 0x7B error is an Inaccessible Boot Device error
This means that the computer can't find the hard drive to boot from.
I would start by trying a bootable hard drive diagnostic. I have a list of them here: http://www.carrona.org/hddiag.html
Start with the Seagate Seatools bootable diagnostic. If that doesn't work, then try the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test (DFT) - it works well on older IDE drives.
If the hard drives pass the diagnostic tests, then use the Recovery Console: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/307654
And run fixboot and fixmbr (and maybe bootcfg)
