Blue screen while booting

Hi experts,

After I have installed an Audigy 2 (value version) audio board in my pc, I keep getting an "INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR" blue screen while booting into Windows. I can only access Windows in Safe-Mode.

I have a dual-boot system. The first partition being Windows XP Pro SP2, the second being Windows Vista Ultimate RC1. Audigy works fine while running Vista.

Any ideas?

Remove the audio driver while you are in the safe mode and check if you are encountering the same error message. Since this error message is due to the sound driver which is not installed correctly or there is an conflict in the drivers.

since i assume that "INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR" refers to a power error, it might be good to calculate the power needed : http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculator.jsp

also, if another sound card was installed before, did you remove those drivers?

Greetings Pixe !

This behavior can occur if a program installs a kernel-mode driver that attaches itself to the standard keyboard driver (I8042prt.sys) and does not support Plug and Play I/O request packets (IRPs). Examples of programs that exhibit this behavior include:
Pgpdisk version 6.02 and 6.5 (installs Pgpmemlock.sys and Pgpdisk.sys drivers)
Adobe Type Manager version 4.0 (installs the Atmhelpr.sys driver)

I had connected a 4-port USB 2.0 hub but didn't connect the AC/DC adapter, so this was obviously the problem. I had all it's four ports connected to devices, including a web camera.

So it had little to do with Audigy. Very helpful and usefull tips though however.

Thanks everyone for your time and sorry for the delay.

Regards,
