What is causing the “The description for Event ID ( … ) in Source ( …. ) cannot be found… “?
In one case, this Event ID appeared on Windows Server 2003 SP1 and Windows Server 2003 R2 SP1 when it was installed. The computer had a Matrox Millennium G550 PCIe display adapter installed. When Windows was restarted in normal mode after the installation, the Windows graphics screen appeared, but when I logged on, the screen turned light grey/blue and the keyboard and mouse locked up. I restarted the computer with the power switch, went into Safe Mode and opened Device Manager. I found that Windows Server 2003 had installed a generic Matrox Millennium G550 driver that did not seem to be compatible with the model that I had. I installed the correct Matrox driver by running a setup program for it from the CD supplied with it. When I restarted the computer normally, the lockup problem had been fixed and this Event ID no longer appeared.
This event should normally read:
The driver G550DHD for the display device \Device\Video0 got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates a problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly. Please check with your hardware device vendor for any driver updates.
