Windows 7: Random BSOD's on idle computer, mostly 0x00000124

Random BSOD's on idle computer, mostly 0x00000124

I have a computer running as my home server with Plex, etc., and every now and again (it might be a few days in between, or just an hour) it gets a BSOD. It's just a "server" so it sits there with very little interaction from me. I've stripped it down to the bare components, done memtest86 on the memory, Prime95 for the CPU, FurMark for the GPU, disk check on the HD's, etc., and none have failed. I even switched from eSATA to USB3 for the external drives (and disconnected them completely). I've tried looking at the data in BlueScreenView, but I can't figure out what it means. So, attached is the info collected per the stickied instructions. Can anyone decipher what's going on? Thanks!

Awesome, thank you! I found a slightly newer driver on the nVidia website and am updating now. It looks like they never did Win7 drivers, so had to go with Vista x64. Hopefully that'll do the trick!
