Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Unexplained Shut Down related to NVIDIA Driver

I just upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 Ultimate (64 Bit) yesterday and I have a problem none of my computer friends can fix!

Whenever I play high quality movies or use Google Earth my computer fan starts whirring really fast for about 2 or 3 second then the computer shuts off. I am able to replicate this when I try to get a Windows Experience Index Rating. My computer will shut of when running the first process "3D Directx9" (that is what I THINK it is called).

This is tied to my NVIDIA Driver somehow because I was advised to roll back my "NVIDIA Quadro NVS 120M" Driver. Afterwards, the display was stretched (as expected) and I was able to run the WEI Rating for a score of 1 based on "graphics" and "gaming graphics".

I reinstalled my driver because the stretched display bothered me a lot, but I really need this problem fixed.

Thank you to anyone who can help out!
