The internal power error (a BSoD error) can be a very intimidating problem for many users. But the reason for this issue is not very complicated. Generally, BSoD errors call attention to incompatibility issues on your device. So if you have updated your system recently or any other software on your device, or haven’t updated anything for a long time, it can cause an internal power error. Consider the following article as a guide to walk you through each step of solving this error.
How to fix Internal power error on Windows 11:
1) Expand the hibernation file:
Click on the search box on your taskbar and type in ‘Command Prompt’. Run Command prompt as an administrator. You need to type in the following command in the command prompt – “powercfg /hibernate /size 100”. Enter this command and press enter.

2) Check for irregularities in performance and health:
Click on the search box on your taskbar again and this time type in ‘Windows security’. Click on the first result. On ‘Device performance and health’ icon, check if you can see a yellow exclamation mark. The yellow exclamation mark notifies you about some possible irregularities on your device. If you see a similar notification, click on the icon and follow the prompts to eliminate the problem.
3) Update system and drivers:
Type ‘Check for updates’ in the search box on your taskbar. Open the first search result. Check if you have any updates pending for your device. Install the update for your system. This should solve the internal power error. Also, go to ‘Device manager’ and check if any of your hardware can use a driver update. You can easily find that out by looking for a yellow exclamation mark. Click on the driver that has an exclamation mark. Right-click on its driver and look for updates. Install all the necessary updates and your problem should be eliminated.
4) Rollback an update:
If you had just recently updated your system and/or drivers, chances are that one of those updates is incompatible with your device. To uninstall a system update, type ‘Check for updates’ in the Windows search box and open the app. Scroll a bit to find ‘View update history’. Select it and look through the list of updates made to your device recently. Right-click on the most recent one and uninstall it. Rollback any driver updates you might have initiated recently.
5) Uninstall faulty software:
It is very important to check for the compatibility of the software with your PC before installing it. If you have installed a program recently, consider uninstalling it. This can solve the internal power error quite easily.
6) Hard drive turn off timer:
Another way to solve this issue is to set the hard drive turn off timer to 0. Simply type in ‘Power options’ in the Windows search box. Click on ‘Edit power plan’ and go to ‘Change advanced power settings’. Click on ‘Hard disc’ to expand it and go to ‘Turn off hard disk after’. In the dialog box, set the value to 0.
