Here's some information about the STOP 0x7b error:http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php#0x7b
This is primarily a problem with your hard drive, but may also be due to corruption of the drivers that run your hard drive. CHKDSK /F /R will help to detect some problems with the hard drive.
Are you able to get into Windows? If not, there are several ways to try and fix this problem:
1) Use the Recovery Console to run "fixboot" and maybe even "fixmbr"
2) Performa a repair install of Windows XP
3) Run Digital Dolly to see if you can check your hard drive status
4) Download the diagnostic software from the hard drive manufacturer's website.
If all of this fails, then you may need a new hard drive - but don't rush out and get one until you let us know how the troubleshooting is working.
