jfk Posted October 26, 2016 Report Share Posted October 26, 2016 Errors reported in Watchout typically originate from two sources. WATCHOUT internal error's always provide a text description, and never include a numeric error code. Errors containing numeric codes originate from the Windows operating system (OS). i.e. points to the hardware / OS for resolution To interpret an OS error code, reference Windows error code documentation tip: a google search for the error code number is often effective Note: WATCHOUT presents the error value in decimal format. Often Microsoft documentation lists the error value in hex format, so convert the WATCHOUT delivered OS error value to hex and OR search for both. Numeric error codes occur when WATCHOUT has sent an instruction to the OS and instead of completing the instruction, the OS has responded with an error. WATCHOUT passes that OS error message through so that it can retain foreground operation (providing the error is non-fatal). You may see OS errors even with WATCHPAX. Those typically trace back to display output disruption, often from a distortion or loss of the EDID handshake. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
