    BSOD on new system, INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR ntoskrnl.exe


    I've installed windows 8.1 just a few days ago, and since day one, they've been crashing a lot.
    Since it's newly bought computer I somewhat doubt it could be hardware, but you'll hopefully reassure me.

    Here is what WhoCrashed says:
    On Fri 20.3.2015. 7:16:50 GMT your computer crashed
    crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\032015-9437-01.dmp
    This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x14DCA0)
    Bugcheck code: 0xA0 (0x10A, 0xA, 0xFFFFE00001C5D240, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000185)
    Error: INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR
    file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
    product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
    company: Microsoft Corporation
    description: NT Kernel & System
    Bug check description: This bug check indicates that the power policy manager experienced a fatal error.
    This problem might be caused by a thermal issue.
    The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.
    I've uploaded the attachment as instructed for further info.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think I've found the cause of the error, my memory controller has been set to IDE while having ssd disc on sata port. That caused some kind of instability, I guess. Hope this helps someone

When my computer (Win 8.1) wakes up from hibernation, the ntoskrnl.exe process runs off the charts and the fan kicks into high gear and doesn't stop until I reboot. Then it is fine. Have others experienced difficulty with this? I'm really hoping it gets addressed in the next update.
