Windows 7 64-bit

I found more information. If I'm looking at it right, the SD bit was set for this specific PCI-E error. SD means Surprise Down, as in it was reported by the controller that the link established between the PCI-E card and the controller hub was lost. Unfortunately this can be rather broad, in that it could mean either the card or the motherboard was responsible for losing the connection. There's also the possibility of dust or something else that's stuck in the PCIE slot, or that the card is not flush and correctly inserted into the slot. Make sure that isn't the case, otherwise, given the complaints from others about this board, I'd lean more to the controller being responsible.

Looked up VenID:DevID on Turned up with the client's Intel 7500 Chipset PCIe Root Port which is part of the ICH10 Intel Southbridge chipset.

I then went to MSDN and looked up any structure information related to PCI Express and AER (Advanced Error Reporting). The results came up with 3 possible structures. Because this was a report sent by the Root Port (you can tell in the WHEA error by the Port Type), the structure we want is PCI_EXPRESS_ROOTPORT_AER_CAPABILITY. Then I looked at the structure details related to Uncorrectable Error Status as it should tell us the current status of the error that was triggered. In the WHEA record, it shows us that SD is capitalized, meaning the bit related to that is set, so we should look for details on what "SD" most likely means. Result in the article is "Surprise Down". Googling this showed that it means a report that there was a sudden connection loss between the card and the controller.
