Troubleshooting and Fixing Errors

Troubleshooting and Fixing Errors

Every now and then, we all get an error message on our computer screen and most of the time, we don’t know what it means or how to fix it. Am I right? I’m sure you agree with me when I say we can all use some help from time to time with the error messages we receive. That’s especially true when you have to get past the error in order to complete a task. Well, it doesn’t have to be so hard. Come along with me to find out how!

Most of you probably have no one to turn to when you receive an error message. That is, until now! There’s a new Web site you can visit to find out what an error message means and how you can easily fix it. The name of the Web site is “What Does This Error Mean?” and you can find it right here. So, how does it work? Well, you can copy and paste or type your error message in to the box on the site and simply wait for your results. Or, you can browse through the most recent and most common errors.

Let’s use error #404 as an example. Its explanation is “Server not found.” Go ahead and copy and paste that into the box and then hit the Find Me Some Help button.

The results for that particular error are shown below:

Another common error that’s received is “Oops! We can’t find the Web page you’re looking for.” That particular error message didn’t have a solution at the time I was on the site. Because of that, I went ahead and put one in myself, because I knew what it meant. That’s just another cool thing about this Web site. If you think you can add some information to it, you’re free to do so. That way, everyone benefits!

Just in case you weren’t sure, I added this solution: “The Web page you’re looking for is no longer there. It has been moved or deleted.” Also, if you’d like to keep tabs on a certain error for when its information is updated, you can do so by clicking on the Follow This Error button.

You can also browse through the most recent error messages by clicking on the Browse button at the top of the page. It will show you the name of the error message and how many solutions it has.

I hope this helps ease your error message headaches!
