Here's my problem. Almost every time I use my computer, I will get a DPAL ERROR failure that essentially closes down what I'm doing. It usually occurs while I'm on the Internet, although not always, and can occur while browsing, downloading, or doing nothing. I'm running Windows '98 with 64 MB RAM on a P133 processor. I've noticed that Windows '98 continues to run underneath the blue screen, but when you press a key to continue, the blue screen of death absolutely positively will not go away. I always have to reset the computer, and when scandisk is run, there are never any damaged files. Most of the time it works fine, until this happens. Here is the text of the error message:
Abnormal parameter passed in ...
in file .\hdlc.c at line 550
And there's the usual blue screen malarkey that follows, but the above is the gist of it. When I try to find this particular file, the computer can never locate it. Anyone who has an idea of what this is and how I can correct it...please post it here and also please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It would certainly be appreciated!

look at this site:
this looks like a communications driver. there is also a reference to linux about this kind of driver. in windows\explorer, go to "view: folder options"; choose "view" then make sure "show all files" is checked. uncheck "hide file extensions..", then look again for the file.
