Restart in Safe Mode. Remove the entries for the devices you wish to delete from the Device Manager. Reboot.

While in Safe Mode, look for any extra entries in the Device Manager for hardware you do not have, or duplicates of devices, and delete them also.

When do you get the error message? Before or after windows logo screen?

I think that message usually comes up when you either plug a hard drive into the same channel ex. Had a CDROM plugged into secondary master and now i plug a hard drive in there.  Then i get that error.  Usually all you have to do is boot the computer, go into the BIOS and some of them have an option to redetect the IDE devices.  Go through that and then save and exit.  That usually fixes it for me.
