What is the most wicked error message you have ever encountered?

category: general [glöplog]

1) Since days, I am joking among friends for an error message that seems quite funny engrish to me (Though I find on google that this thing exists normally as a term, but who cares). I had a Crypto TV tuner card and the XP drivers from the original CD don't work in XP(!). And the message I get is "Catastrophic Failure" =)))

2) A friend was coding some stuff and there was a crash. The debuger said that an error has occured at the address BAAD F00D. That was rather funny the first time we encountered it!

3) I also have encountered this one few times BB Image

Error 404


AHHHHHHHHH!!!! IT BURNS!!!!!
It's quite fun that the "catastrophic error" is an official microsoft error message, atleast i've been getting it from the win32 api via getlasterror/formatmessage.
Could not set pixel format: the operation completed successfully. ATI GL drivers :)

When I had a crappy video card the demo would not even initialize, I got this error that said "Your Computer Sucks"

I've always loved the "Click OK to crash" in Buzz.

An error occured, caused by the following reason :

no error.

[OK]

That was in the windows 3.1 era, from some scanner driver software, I think.

alltime favourite is probably the famous "Keyboard not present. Press F1...", but recently i met the following:
"/bin/sh : bad command interpreter" (or something like that, quoted from heart)
while trying to run a perfectly normal shell script starting with the line "#!/bin/sh"

A friend told me that Win95 at one time while booting produced a blue screen with the text:

ERROR: MONITOR NOT DETECTED
Press any key to continue

Makes you wonder where would you see this

stuff.cpp(13) : warning C4390: ';' : empty controlled statement found; is this the intent?

and also who could forget "d3dcaps is for lamers" or fvs32's "we're proud to present you the following error:".
