BSOD - 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0XF6E21384, 0XF7A81420, 0XF7A8111C) after installing video card

I have an IBM ThinkCentre computer (running XP) that I am trying to install a dual video card on.

First I tried to install a Radeon Video card. After installing the video card and the drivers, windows would load up to the Windows logo with the blue bar going across the screen. The blue bar would go across the screen twice before the computer restarted.

I decided to try to install a different video card. I installed the GeForce 5200 (with drivers). Now when the computer loads up I get a BSOD with the following error code:
0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0XF6E21384, 0XF7A81420, 0XF7A8111C)

Obviously this is video card related but I just can't seem to figure out how to solve it. The video card is installed with the drivers that came with the CD but I have no luck on getting it to run.

Try uninstalling all video drivers and just use the standard Windows VGA driver.  Shutdown and install the video card you want; then power up and install the appropriate video driver.

I've attempted that before but I'll try that again.

I'm actually mid-way thru this process already. This time around after uninstalling the video drivers, I'm installing all windows updates (important and optional).
NEVER install hardware drivers from microsoft update. use the manufacturer's driver.

find the lates drivers for your VGA card and that should do.
