error message

   A message from the program or the operating system that contains information about a condition that requires some human intervention to solve.
   Error messages can indicate relatively trivial problems, such as a disk drive that does not contain a disk, as well as fatal problems, such as when a serious operating system bug renders the system useless and requires a system reboot.
