Fitted refill cartridges to my cannon160 printer and computer crashed

you might be suprised to know that the two actions are not related, safe to say your computer might have been giving some sign of crashing or in most cases, none. When a system crashes, it's the hard disk that has failed and not the entire system. Based on the rate of damage, it can either be fixed by formatting and running a fresh copy of the operating system or replaced with a new hard disk. Either way you should see a technician, Now that you know what the problem is.
Hope this helps

The HDD ( Hard Drive ) is mounted on the back of the copier behind the rear cover. It looks like a regular hard drive from a computer. It sounds like your hard drive has crashed. It will need to be replaced. You can try to disconnect & reconect the hard drive... Good Luck
