My main PC has 1950X and my motherboard is the ASUS Zenith Extreme. I wanted to upgrade to Windows 11 as I liked the design more, even though it is an unsupported CPU. After I upgraded to Windows 11 everything seemed normal, every program I tried was operating fine but eventually my computer froze. Nothing was responding, not my mouse, keyboard, anything. Even the small screen on the motherboard which shows the temperature froze.
I have encountered the freezing problem multiple times, but it is a random event. So my computer may freeze after booting to Windows, sometimes while I am browsing the Internet etc. The error I am getting is the following:
A corrected hardware error has occurred.
Component: PCI Express Root Port
Error Source: Advanced Error Reporting (PCI Express)
Primary Bus:Device:Function: 0x0:0x1:0x1
Secondary Bus:Device:Function: 0x0:0x0:0x0
Primary Device Name:PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_1453&SUBSYS_87611043&REV_00
Secondary Device Name:
I have tried everything I can think in order to fix this problem. I have updated to the latest BIOS, updated to the latest chipset drivers, checked every RAM stick separately, removing the NVMe drive, installing Windows 11 to another drive, changing power profiles etc. Sometimes the errors may stop occurring, but after turning off my PC completely and turning it on again (not restarting), the errors come back.
The only time I was able to stop the WHEA 17 messages was when I disabled the PCI Express Root Port in device manager, but this is not an ideal solution. As a note, the PCI Express Root Port which causes the problem is the one with AMD PCI, AMD PSP and USB 3.0 drivers.
In order to use this computer I have installed Windows 10 (temporarily?) on a different drive, as I am not getting any errors in Windows 10 and the system seems stable as I didn't have any freezing problems since.
However, I would like to have my Windows 11 install fixed and if this is not possible, I will move to Linux.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix the Whea 17 errors?
