Default Behavior

Amdsbs is a kernel device driver. In Windows 7 it won't be started if the user doesn't start it. If Amdsbs fails to start, Windows 7 attempts to write the failure details into Event Log. Then Windows 7 startup should proceed and the user should be notified that the amdsbs service is not running because of the error.

1. Run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

2. Copy the command below, paste it into the command window and press ENTER:

3. Close the command window and restart the computer.

The amdsbs service is using the amdsbs.sys file that is located in the C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS directory. If the file is removed or corrupted, read this article to restore its original version from Windows 7 installation media.
