Hi,

I'm checked dmesg and getting some error logs about iTCO_wdt.

iTCO_vendor_support: vendor-support=0
iTCO_wdt: Intel TCO WatchDog Timer Driver v1.11
iTCO_wdt iTCO_wdt: can't request region for resource [mem 0x00c5fffc-0x00c5ffff]
iTCO_wdt: probe of iTCO_wdt failed with error -16

could anyone let me know how to fix this issue

Thank you
Paul

    Hi and welcome to the Forum :)
    I had a similar error and just blacklisted the driver causing the issue;
    cat /etc/modprobe.d/50-i2c_piix4.conf 
    
    #sp5100_tco: I/O address 0x0cd6 already in use
    blacklist i2c_piix4
    

    Are you using the watchdog timer on your system? If not consider blacklisting the iTCO_vendor_support module.
