Provider error '8000ffff' Catastrophic failure

I got the following when opening up a page. It usually happens after I
modify one page(not connections.asp ) without refresh in IE. I have to
refresh the IE browser and the error usually will go away. Why?
Thanks.
Provider error '8000ffff'

.

The only time I have ever seen this message is when I was
running an older version of MDAC. What version are you on?

Response.Write application("co nnstr") & application("un ame") &
application("pa sswd")

MDAC version is 2.52.6019.1

application("co nnstr") = "DSN=OGDW_M M"
application("un ame") = "ogdwadmin"
application("pa sswd") = "dev08"

That DSN exists? My suggestions:

1. Install newer version of MDAC.
2. Drop the DSN and build a connection string using sample found at
www.connectionstring.com

And maybe change your username/password now that you've posted them. :)

That DSN exists. The asp usually works with no problem. If there is a
change to one of the asp, then the error messaeg may come out. The
error message will go away if I refresh the IE Browser.
