Windows Error on Boot After Installing Graphics Card

After installing a new graphics card into my computer and installing the required drivers, when ever Windows 8.1 starts to boot up it errors with:

Recovery
Your PC needs to be repaired
A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed.
Error code: 0xc000000e

It does not matter how many times I restart my computer, the error is still the same. The only way around this error that I could find is to boot to the bios than exit the bios to Windows. This causes Windows to boot up without any issues. Any way to fix this so that I don't have to go into the bios every time the computer restarts?

Method 1:
Unplug all the external devices and try booting and check.
Method 2:
Check if you are able to boot in safe mode or not:
 If yes,I suggest you to put the computer inclean boot state and check.
To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

Ensure the drivers used are compatible for Windows 8.1

I cant get far enough into the boot to get to safe mode without it showing the error. I do know that the drivers are compatible, its a Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics card.

it can also be a bad card - can you test it on another system ?

After doing some research, I found that the issue had to do with the boot record on the drive somehow getting corrupted when I installed the graphics card. After running a disk repair within windows, the problem got worse preventing me from booting at all. I than put in the Windows install DVD I had, ran a disk repair from that, and the problem was fixed.
