When I ran the GPU stability test for the first time, AIDA64 warned me that I should increase (or decrease?) some threshold or time setting for graphics driver responsiveness. I said ok, make the change.
Whatever this feature was called - I can't recall, how do I reverse the change? I want to troubleshoot some video problems that have been occurring since I made that change.

CPU - Ryzen 3 1200

Bios last update. Default settings.
Sometimes Kernel-Power (41) mostly in games and tests Aida64.
Tests that I conducted (prime95(1 hour), OCCT(~40min), Memtest86(in bios (1 hour)), TestMem5), all is ok. Sometimes the sound hangs. As if the whole system hangs for ~0.2-0.4sec.
I started the stability test today and got a dialog, which asked me if I would want to change a setting related to my video driver, which would help with stability, if I recall correctly. It also said it would required a restart. I copied the dialog via control-c and clicked no because I was unsure what the setting does and if it could cause other issues but as soon as I clicked the button my video output vanished (blackscreen) and needed to hard reset.
I had the same blackscreen issue earlier while rendering a long video, which is likely related to my overclock (Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.8GHz) but could also be related to that setting the dialog mentioned. Because I needed to hard reset, I couldn't paste the content of the dialog somewhere and don't remember much of it, something about timing that should be changed?
I would like to know if there is a list of these suggestion dialogues, I would recognize it if I could read it again.
For some reason the GPGPU Benchmark screen shows different specs for the Intel HD4400 iGPU compared to what the GPU section in the main AIDA64 program shows.
GPGPU Bench lists 12 CU/48 cores
GPU page lists 20 EU/80 cores
As far as I am aware, the 20EU/CU listed on the GPU page is the correct configuration for HD4400 (as well as HD4200 and HD4600).
I also have a Haswell Pentium. That chip shows the same, (correct) value (10EU/CU) on both the GPU and GPGPU bench pages.
