pci to pci bridge causing crash/freeze

PCI bus 0, device 28, function 1. When I try to update the driver , or disable the device, or uninstall the device the OS freezes/crashes. The initial proble I had with my pc was during a windows update it would always crash. After a clean windows 10 install it still was having the same issue. I one by one updated all out of date drivers. This is how I discovered pci to pci issue. It seems like a hardware issue. If indeed it is what part is the pci to pci bus bridge located on to replace that part? Thanks for reading and any help you can be

Two ideas.

1. I continue to find folk that write "try to update the driver" mean they tried the very unreliable Windows update driver button. My method remains the same for over 2 decades. Go to the maker of the board and get the BIOS and driver from there.

2, If the hardware is suspect, you change that out.

I downloaded the intel driver. It's like any time that bridge is used for anything it causes a crash. So yes the hardware is suspect. I just don't know what hardware to replace.
