Specific error messages are those which are displayed when a specific issue has occurred or a specific operation is performed like, invalid username or password. This error message occurs when an incorrect or invalid username is typed on the screen. “Windows could not open the file“can be categorized under generic errors because the reason is not revealed.
- Blue screen error codes
- Invalid operation errors
- Low disk space or virtual memory error
Blue screen error codes
A Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) or a blue screen error is an error detecting and reporting technique in all the latest Windows operating systems. A blue screen with an error code is displayed and the system stops. You can take down the error code and refer to the Microsoft website to find a detailed article about the blue screen error code. Disconnect recently connected hardware and then try to restart the computer. Boot the computer in safe mode and then try to uninstall the last installed update or software, try to restore the computer to an earlier date to fix the blue screen error. Viruses can cause a blue screen error. So, run a full system scan in safe mode.
Invalid operation errors
You can see invalid operation errors when you try to perform a task which you are authorized to perform. There are many run line commands that can be executed from the RUN box in the start menu, if you mistype a command or type an invalid command, you will get a message “Windows could not find the command“. So, ensure that you type the correct command. When you fill an online form and you enter alphabets in a space where only numbers are allowed or vice versa, you might get an error message as well. So, read the instructions carefully before entering the information in the form.
The low disk space error message is displayed when you try to copy files or install programs to a drive which does not have sufficient disk space. So, try to free the disc space by deleting unwanted files or try to install or copy files to a different drive. The system RAM uses a virtual memory to speed up some processes and to share its tasks. Virtual memory is a portion of your hard drive. You get a message stating the virtual memory is low, when the virtual memory is insufficient. You can increase the virtual memory from System Properties.
