  • Hello,


    According to my experience, INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR should be a BSOD issue or stop error issue. Since Windows system uses separated user mode and kernel mode memory space, stop errors are always caused by kernel portion components, such as a hardware device, third-party drivers, backup software or anti-virus services (buggy services).


    The system goes to a blue screen because there is some exceptions happened in the kernel (either the device driver errors or the service errors), and Windows implements this mechanism: When it detects some errors occur in the kernel, it will kill the box in case some more severe damage happens. Then we get a blue screen or the system reboots (it depends on what the system settings are).


    First of all, if you could login the system at the moment, you should obtain the latest service pack for Windows Vista. For more information, please refer to the following KB article.

    Stop error message when you put a Windows Vista-based computer in hibernation: "STOP: 0x000000A0 (0x00000009, 0xc0000001, 0x00000001, 0x00000000) INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR (a0)"



    Then remove all unnecessary hardware devices from the computer, try entering Windows safe mode to test whether it is a third-party software/hardware related issue. If the problem still persists, to troubleshoot this kind of kernel crash issue, we need to debug the crashed system dump. Unfortunately, debugging is beyond what we can do in the forum. A suggestion would be to contact Microsoft Customer Service and Support (CSS) via telephone so that a dedicated Support Professional can assist with your request. Please be advised that contacting phone support will be a charged call.

    I hope the problem will be resolved soon. Thanks!
