Culprit is the MongoDB is not installed on your PC. Go through your config and disable connections to it.
If you have MongoDB installed, make sure it is running and your connectionstring is correct.
You have 2 Options to fix it. You can

then install the MongoDB as decribed in this blog
Since I was not planning on using MongoDB I decided to disable it. that’s next
2. Go to your “[your drive]:inetpub\wwwroot\[Instancename]\Website\App_Config\Include\Sitecore.Xdb.config” and set false for property: Xdb.Enabled. Also go to the connectionString on Step #1 and comment out the following lines
<!–<add name=”analytics” connectionString=”mongodb://localhost:27017/Sitecore8_analytics” />
<add name=”tracking.live” connectionString=”mongodb://localhost:27017/Sitecore8_tracking_live” />
<add name=”tracking.history” connectionString=”mongodb://localhost:27017/Sitecore8_tracking_history” />
<add name=”tracking.contact” connectionString=”mongodb://localhost:27017/Sitecore8_tracking_contact” />–>
