Hardware error.

Apparently, the error you are getting is not a Blue Screen of Death.

You have to switch memory modules (RAM) to test them all in each memory slot. Also remove the graphic card and plug it back in.

See if the error still occurs.

Ok, before doing that, try to flash your BIOS.

Download this to your desktop:

And run it.

Check if the error still occurs.
