System errors are messages that inform you that something is wrong with the computer’s hardware or software. These error codes often have a brief description that can aid you in solving the issue. However there are many error codes that are made equal. Some error codes can be difficult to understand and not particularly useful. For instance, an error code that says “file name too long” probably means the file’s name or extension is too large for the filesystem to handle. In this case, shortening the file name or freeing space on your hard drive would probably resolve the issue.
Other error codes could indicate that the system couldn’t access a disk device or use a file that did not exist. These errors will usually cause your system’s to halt. You will see a screen of blue with an explanation of the system error.
Certain older systems require information conform to strict formats and will display an error if there’s even the slightest inconsistency. In contrast, the latest systems tend to be more flexible and more accepting of data that doesn’t conform to the format specified.
