You probably have a bad or unnecessary driver installed... I had the same STOP error when I was fixing my sister's computer... I found that I installed a device driver for a device that was turned off in the BIOS. The result was an immediate STOP error after driver installation.

Here's what I believe happened in your case: The OS is attempting to use a device that is not installed or turned off (through BIOS) even though the device driver is present. This will happen whenever the OS tries to use the device.

To fix it, either go in BIOS and enable the device or boot to safe mode and remove the driver.
