All You Need to Know About Common Windows Xp Error Codes
Submit Articles Back to Articles
Runtime errors in Windows XP usually occur when the program that is being
used is having some problems. Likely, when you get a runtime error, the program
will automatically shut down and you will lose all unsaved data. This can be
very frustrating and can create much stress especially if you were doing
something important. For most people, it is imperative that these problems get
fixed as soon as possible. So, to help you better understand what these runtime
errors are, I will discuss a couple of popular ones and explain how to fix them.
The fist common runtime error is runtime error 424. Error 424 is just one of
the many errors that you may come across when using Windows XP operating system
software. The message is displayed as "Run-time error '424': Object required",
means that the program you are trying to run has experienced a programming error
that has resulted in the program's failure. You will find that this message is
often displayed when someone is trying to use Microsoft Access 2000 while
attempting to run MS Office Chart Wizard. This takes place when he is still on
the data access page.
There are a couple of different ways that you can fix runtime error 424. If
you really need to use the Office Chart, then the best thing to do is to
uninstall Internet Explorer 6.0 or use a computer that does not have IE 6.0
installed on its hard drive. There are other Internet browsers out there that
are just as good as IE, if not better, such as Firefox. Another way to fix this
error would be to avoid using the chart wizard at all, if possible. You can do
this by right clicking on the chart that you are working on and selecting the
"Property Toolbox" that is found in the corresponding menu.
When runtime error 53 appears on your screen, this means that the file you
are looking for cannot be found. Error 53 is one of the most common errors that
Windows XP users get. Most people get this error when they are trying to use a
new software or hardware, after it has been successfully installed into the
computer. This is because one of the files that is needed to run the program
could either be missing, corrupted or not installed. The unavailability of this
file results in the program producing the runtime error, thus, preventing the
program from opening.
There are a couple of easy ways that you can fix runtime error 53. One way to
fix this error would be to completely uninstall and reinstall the program you
are trying to run. You can do this by going into the control panel and selecting
add/remove programs and then clicking on the program and clicking remove. You
can also fix this error by updating the software or the drivers for the new
hardware you are trying to use. If neither of these methods work, contact the
company you bought the hardware or software from.
These are only two of the many runtime errors that can occur when using
Windows XP. Most runtime errors have easy fixes, but if you run into a problem
that you cannot find a solution for, it is time to call in the professionals.
Remember, if your computer is under warranty, do not attempt to open it. Doing
so could void your warranty. If you find that the computer is not working, send
it in for repairs.
