"Your hardware settings have changed. Please reboot your computer for these changes to take effect!!" shows at each boot.
I spent 3 hours 'chatting' with HP Support and they told me for a third time that I had a 'hardware problem' and that I must ship my machine out for repairs for a few weeks. The first time it came back blank so reinstalling all my software and files was needed (6-8 hours). The cause of the problem was neither noted or found so HP replaced the computer (shipped out a second time ... complete reinstall needed again).
Googling the error text leads me to believe there is a problem with the AMD display drivers but reinstalling/updating them has not worked.
Open to suggestions.

Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel.
I understand that you have a message “Your hardware settings have changed” every time you reboot the PC. Did I get it right?

No, this did not help. I called the phone number given to me by HP Support Assistant and although it was incorrect, my call was routed to the proper department. After approximately 75 mintes, my problem was solved. This will cost me about $60 in mobile phone use charges.

Thank you for the update and I understand you've been troubled with the charges that took place in order to find a solution to your concern,
Don't worry though as I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP.
They will contact you shortly and likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number.
Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact.
Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (such as serial numbers and case details).
I hope you have a good day,
I am an HP Employee
