It is under Serial ATA and is newer than the one installed

Please try the Intel auto detect.

Intel® Driver Update Utility

And see if it picks up the latest drivers for:

Intel Mobile Express Chipset SATA RAID Controller.

So it is Intel Rapid Storage Driver. Download and install this one.

Also there are some problems related to display driver.

Uninstall McAfee Using McAfee Removal Tool. Uninstall Super AntiSpyware, too. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

You have a lot of Dell factory stuff installed.

SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e)
This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
happening.
Arguments:
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff8800104b6ec, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: fffff88003fee868, Exception Record Address
Arg4: fffff88003fee0c0, Context Record Address

Every version od RST is crashing here.

Go to Control Panel > Program anf Features. Uninstall Intel Rapid Storage. Then do it:
  1. Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
  2. It will open the "computer management" window.
  3. Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
  4. Expand "Disc Drives" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  5. Select one item under it, right click, uninstall.
  6. Continue the process for all items under "Disc Drives"
  7. Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate system driver, msahci.sys.
And, scan the system for possible virus infection with these two programs. .
Let us know the results.
