System errors are messages that tell you that something is wrong with the computer’s hardware or software. Many times these error codes are accompanied by a short description after them which can help you to fix the issue. However there are many error codes that are designed to be the same. Certain error codes can be difficult to understand and aren’t very useful. If you get an error message that says “filename too long” is a sign that the file’s name or extension is too large for the system to handle. In this case, reducing the filename length or freeing up space on your hard disk could solve the issue.

Other error codes could indicate that your system is unable to access a hard drive device or utilize a file that was not available. These types of errors can cause your system to stop, and you will see the screen turn blue and display a system error message when this happens.

Certain older systems require that data conform to certain formats and will display an error for even the slightest deviation. Modern systems, on contrary, are more flexible and accepting of data that does not comply with the format.
