unknown PCI device produces corrected errors - but what PCI device?

Recommended Posts

Lately I get the following error in the System Log from time to time (every other day):

Jan 6 12:50:25 <name> kernel: pcieport 0000:00:1c.4: AER: Corrected error received: 0000:00:1c.4
Jan 6 12:50:25 <name> kernel: pcieport 0000:00:1c.4: PCIe Bus Error: severity=Corrected, type=Data Link Layer, (Transmitter ID)
Jan 6 12:50:25 <name> kernel: pcieport 0000:00:1c.4: device [8086:a33c] error status/mask=00001000/00002000
Jan 6 12:50:25 <name> kernel: pcieport 0000:00:1c.4: [12] Timeout

(The first three lines are red = ERROR, the last line is black = TEXT)


In order to fix it I did some research and among other things I found this topic:

Unfortunately none of the found topics helped me.


In order to investigate my problem more, I wonder what PCI device is behind `00:1c.4`. Therefore the following:


In the System Devices:

IOMMU group 8:[8086:a33c] 00:1c.4 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Cannon Lake PCH PCI Express Root Port #5 (rev f0)


In `lspci -vv` (only the entry for `00:1c.4`, not everything from the output):

So what really is behind the `00:1c.4`? I can not say.

How do I know what PCI Slot this is, so that I as a human can tell what Card I plugged in there? (GPU, USB Ports, network card, ...)

(Above it only says `Port 5`, but in the motherboard manual the ports are numbered differently.)


Additional Information:

The motherboard is a `ASUS WS c246 Pro`.
