System errors are messages that inform you that something is wrong with the software or hardware of your computer. The error codes usually have an explanation that will aid in resolving the issue. Not all error codes are alike. Certain error codes are difficult to comprehend and are not very helpful. For example an error code that says „file name is too long“ could mean that the name of your file or its extension is too big for the filesystem to handle. In this instance cutting down on the length of your filename or releasing space on your hard disk would likely solve the problem.

Other error codes may indicate that your system is unable to access a device with a hard disk or that it attempted to utilize a file that was not available. These errors typically cause your system to halt and display the screen turn blue and display a system error message when this occurs.

Certain older systems require information conform to strict formats and will throw an error for even the slightest deviation. However, modern systems are usually more flexible and more tolerant of data that doesn’t conform to the format required.
