Up to Drupal 7 all modules and themes list is stored in
system table with there
enabled (i.e. 1) / disabled (i.e. 0) status. To Disable your module, set the status to
0 for the module name that you want to disable. Check simple MySQL query below:
UPDATE system SET status='0' WHERE name='module_name';
After running the above query, try emptying the cache tables. You can identify cache tables by table name starting with
cache_. To make sure Drupal doesn't try loading from cache.
You can find more details about same on Drupal.org in Disabling or enabling modules manually in the database Or check How to manually uninstall a module? question.
