I have a remote customer with a crashed PE1950 server. He sent me the attached .jpg showing a critical PCIe error.
I think both of the risers are PCIe.
Can you tell me which component this may be referring to?

Your issue is about whatever card you have in slot 4.
I would call DELL support first of all as they provide CD to run diagnostics tests.
They may need you to swap card slots to be sure and see if the error follows the card or only when the card is in slot 4.
You could update the firmware on the card and the motherboard even if it is a third party or DELL card.  If the error persists, pull the card to test.

PCI device 4 is unlikely to be in slot 4, it's probably integrated onto the motherboard.

That's correct.  Must check what device is... maybe is not a critical one... i.e. a nic im case you don't use it.  Anyway I would call Dell support to provide the diagnostic procedures.
