The most ridiculous error message you've ever seen?

I've seen plenty of this type.

 

One time I've seen this error message relates to GDI+ failing. For Visual Studio 2008, there is a .NET plug-in known as "Mole," which uses a System.Windows.Forms.Form to display a debugger visualizer with WPF content. Every so often, this message would come up, and the graphics window where a DataGridView was supposed to go gets a big red X instead.

 

I never did figure out how that error was caused... (it wasn't my plug-in, but... I was curious...)

Funniest I've seen was years ago back when I was running Windows XP, I was trying to install a game and i kept getting the error message "Error: This software is not compatible with this version of Windows XP" yet, it said it on the box that it was compatible and i knew for a fact it was compatible. More so it said "This version of Windows XP" instead of just "This version of Windows" which I thought was funny/strange.

The funniest error I saw showed up "Error John" on Production environment. Later we found out that the programmer who was testing the system had inserted an alert in between the modules and didn't remove it before moving the code to production. Imagine the embarrassment it caused when we confronted the guy with this :)

"Keyboard Error - Press F2 to Continue"

 

Standard BIOS message: unless you switch off keyboard error detection it will say that - it's intended to get you to plug in a keyboard, since just about all machines need one. Just unplug your keyboard, reboot and you'll see it.

 

But it's always made me smile, too. :D
