To add a bit on this: I've seen you have used pwgui to generate the file.  
It is ok, but does not save you from reading the documentation.  
Quantum-ESPRESSO does only work for systems that make sense, so the input  
have to be consistent both syntactically and physically.

Is a good thing that you are trying to use it, and with some patience you  
will learn. Instead of starting with random input (the Montecarlo  
algorithm is not effective for humans) you should start by checking the  
examples and the tutorial that you can find here:  
<http://www.quantum-espresso.org/learn.php>. There is also a serie of  
video-lectures here: <http://media.quantum-espresso.org/>.
