If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,restart your computer. If this screen appears again ,follow these steps: Check for vireses on your computer.Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers .Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated . Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruptrion ,and then restart your computer. – ahmed Dec 5 '12 at 4:22

If It's showing boot options, then before booting press F8 and select from advanced boot options and enter Disable automatic restart on system failure and select Start Windows Normally, then post here bluescreen error code.

@tom ,how to attach the blue screen message,I typed here as comment. – ahmed Dec 5 '12 at 5:56
no need, that code suffice. Restart computer and press F2 or Del, to access BIOS. In bios, look for SATA Mode, if you find that, post here what value is there and set it to another. (there are only 2, ahci or ide). – week Dec 5 '12 at 6:01
I Checked, "AHCI "shows. – ahmed Dec 5 '12 at 9:03
Set it to ide mode save bios settings F10 and reboot. – week Dec 5 '12 at 9:06
