Event ID 62464 ‘Source amdkmdag’

My laptop has an annoying habit of ‘freezing” and requiring a manual power off and back on again to get it working (HP Probook 6560b).

A look in the system log yielded hundreds of event ID 62464 errors.

It seems I’m not the only one, a quick internet search turned up a few people with the same problem. However all the other posts were advocating disabling the logging of the error. I’m not a fan of disabling error logging no matter how ‘Spammy’ it is.

It’s obviously being generated by my graphics driver, so a look there told me what version I was running. (Start > Run devmgmt.msc {Enter}).

Radeon HD 6470M

I went to HP and downloaded the latest published AMD driver they had, and rebooted, problem solved.

Updated Driver ATI Radeon
