The error code which you mention means:

Error STOP Windows
Titled : STATUS_DEVICE_DATA_ERROR

The error shows bad blocks on your main drive, a possible damaged registry.

To repair, try this:

1. Click on start
2. Click on run
3. Type cmd
4. click ok and a black window will appear
5. Type Chkdsk
6. Press enter
7. Let the process run
8. At the end note what repair was done
9. Close the window and restart
10. Report the result here

Good luck
