Thanks for replying.
The Update History in Settings show that the AMD Display driver has failed to install.
I believe this is causing the message "Your hardware settings have changed .........................". I rolled the driver back to the previous version and everything was ok until it automatically tried to install the driver again. The message then returned.
The laptop is a G51-35 (80M8).

So first uninstall the complete drivers from Device Manager and Programs & Features.
Once done install the latest drivers from AMD & then follow the steps which is mentioned as Accepted reply.
Do let us know how it goes.
Tap that Kudos button if I helped.

Have followed your instructions and now it's wait and see what happens when the driver automatically tries to update.
I will let you know when something happens.

Hi. The method of running the cmd and following the steps worked for me.
First I wrote down the basic steps.
For those who do not know, when using Windows 10, at the bottom left of your monitor or screen - you will see the windows logo and a rectangle with a circle that says -Type here to search.
In that search box type the letters which mean "command" cmd
I became disoriented with the black background and thought maybe I made a mistake -- but the black background is normal.
I typed services.msc
A colorful screen appeared with a long list of choices. I had a little trouble finding AMD External Events Utility but am unsure why because all of choices are in alphabetical order. I double clicked AMD External Events Utility as instructed.
A new screen appeared. Once again I was a bit confused. I read the words and saw Startup type. I think there was a down arrow and I clicked that down arrow.
I clicked the word Disabaled.
At the bottom of that screen are some choices. I clicked the word Apply.
I rebooted the laptop several times to test if the solution worked. So far, no error message. I have been dealing with this error message for months after running a Windows 10 update.
Thank you for helping resolve this issue. I hope my additional comments will benefit others. I am near 60 years old and a grandma. If I can follow these instructions, others can too. These instructions saved me almost a $100 service fee, but will also help technicians earn a living. I was beginning to think I made a mistake buying a Lenovo, but the online support has been great. Kudos to you.

I am getting a similar message on my new Lenovo Ideapad 310 - AMD 10 processor, rinning Windows 10 every time I start up the computer.
Message reads " Your computer needs to be restarted in order to finish setting up device - Pci Bus"
Does anyone have a solution to this?

pls help mine too, already did your instruction but nothing happens it keeps on showing
How about rollbacking the drivers, have you tried that? Or else first update the Video drivers then follow the mentioned steps.

I'm getting the same error every time I start my laptop. Very annoying. (Screen shot below)
I've done the disable AMD external events utility in startup. Still get message every start. I tried to rollback drivers but the button is greyed out so won't let me do it.
I have Lenovo ideapad 110-15ACL Windows 10 Version 1703 OS Build 15063.483 Processor AMD A6-7310 APU with AMD Radeon R4 Graphics 2.00GHZ
I hope there's a solution out there somewhere, I'm sick of this. Thank you in advance.
