On Intel chips, there are instructions that generate exceptions on failure. Kinda like an error return code.

An example that causes an exception is trying to access kernel mode memory from user mode.

Software or the OS can enable memory bounds checking. A bound software exception is reading/writing past memory bounds, reading past allocated memory, writing to read-only memory.

I'm not sure which you mean.
