How to convert error codes from hex to decimal


Follow these steps:

1. Strip off the first four digits of the error code
2. Using a hex calculator, subtract the remaining digits from 10000
3. Convert the answer to decimal

For example, assume you are logging in and you receive an error FFFFF989
Strip off the leading FFFF, leaving you with F989
Open Calc (or some other calculator program) and switch to hex mode
Enter 10000
Subtract F989 (the last 4 digits)
The answer is 677. Convert this to decimal (in Calc, simply press the decimal radio button)
Note the answer in decimal is 1655
