Here's a link to info on the STOP 0x7e error: http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php#0x7e
There are many possible causes for the STOP 0x7e error - but the nVidia file referenced seems to restrict it to video functions (but not necessarily the vid card or it's drivers)
As others have stated, the most likely culprit is the video drivers - try another download of the latest nVidia drivers to be sure that it's not the problem. Be sure that you have the latest motherboard/chipset drivers from Intel also - this can affect the video card also.
If that doesn't fix it, then I'd suspect the vid card itself. Lesser probably causes are other hardware items - so you may want to strip as much hardware off of the system as you can (in order to reduce the possible conflicts.
Also, check out the links in the article I mentioned above - one of them may apply to your specific situation.
