I got myself out of the last error, but now I am back to the reason I formatted in the first place. All my text and displays are blurry! I am working on a HP N3310 and I assumed that a fresh start would assist me in getting everything perfect...not the case!
I do not know the difference from a toaster and a driver or display adater. But in my choices of colors I only get 2 choices...16 bit a 2 black and whight and I NEED and want high color... how do I go about this???? And is it going to cost me any money??? One more thing, I have attempted to download a driver yet my floppy disk state they are too small....can I burn it on a CD instead? If so do I have to prepare the CD in any special way?

without using a restore disk from HP, can present a problem since it does not appear on HPs website. Look for the restore cd or order one from HP.
