It's a bug and happens to both AMD and Nvidia cards,

How to Troubleshoot? ATI Radeon HD 5770 (Dual Cards)

The WEI I wouldn't worry about as that can change from one driver to the next. It can also change from one day to the next depending on what else may be running when you run the WEI. As long as games aren't affected then I wouldn't worry about it too much.
