    I just wanted to say thank you, I am quite sure you fixed my system up for a fresh 14.8 amd driver install in that the difference is quite striking far above most all differences a driver update on it's own might present (imho). win81, installed maybe 5 catalysts up to this point at a guess.

    It's an older card too 6970, so they may not even be writing much code for it specifically any more.

    Thanks Wagnard!

    Very much appreciated, if there comes another version out of the latest AMD drivers for SG users, I will definitely test this one out or future releases! :nerd:

    I've been getting these errors which are in a 'container', whatever these is. The only info given is a GUID and an error code. When I scan my Registry for the GUID it seems to point to things like my monitor, AMD audio stuff. I last used DDU v13.0.1.0 a few days ago. I did restores of my backup disk images and one from 8/8/14 didn't produce the errors.

    Just wanted to let you know. Might be DDU might not, but the timing is right to suspect DDU.

    Unfortunately I didn't save anything before I did a restore. However I found the error by Googling it. The GUID is one of them, however I forgot the actual error code.

    Event 131, DeviceSetupManager:
    Metadata staging failed, result={ae3e7527-f03c-5fac-af1a-428dbba0441b} for container '0xXXXXXXXX'

    log name: Microsoft-Windows-DeviceSetupManager/Admin
    user: system
    event id: 131

    This registry entry might be applicable: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\DISPLAY]

    I think my problem is related to "Added AMD Audio Endpoint removal."

    Those reside here : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\SWD\MMDEVAPI

    Your error tend to point to the "\Display" this is usually the monitors.

    I took a look at the reg entry you gave and some of the errors I received pointed me to it.

    For some strange reason my two pa246 monitors show up in Device Manager under Audio inputs and outputs as "PA246 (AMD High Definition Audio Device)". Monitors have no speakers in them.

    Although the PA246 doesn't have speakers, it does at least have a headphone jack I think so you can pick up the sound signal carried by the HDMI or DisplayPort inputs. Maybe that's it why you see this reg entry.

    But your prediction could be correct about the audio endpoints. It maybe need some work for the type of configuration you have.

    Mind you, my problem happened under the version off DDU right before the current one. Did you make a similar change there too?

    Not changes related to the audio endpoints.
    Do you have by luck the ddu logs?

    I got a whole bunch of these errors a little while ago. They had all kinds of devices in them. Remote computers, disk drives and more.

    I'm thinking that the latest Windows Update this past Tuesday had a lot of patches. Perhaps this is causing the problem. Timing is right.

    So... I don't think it's a DDU problem. I did two things to try and 'fix' the problem. Thinking that these device errors might be coming from hidden and not being used devices I uninstalled them all. But the real solution was to disable event logging for the component that issues the error. As the errors don't seem to be causing any problems I have no qualms disabling logging for them.

    I really should stop looking at the Event Log. What I don't know won't hurt me :)

    Yeah event log can brain hurt.

    As you said, there were some MS patch on Tuesday it could be that.
    Anyway thanks for reporting and researching. If you found anything that confirm its DDU, please tell me.
