Question about HP Deskjet 3845 InkJet Printer
This is independent of every printing ink type and there usually is good instructions with the refills you get for the ink cartridge.
Have you purchased a refill cartridge?
Assuming not - there are 2 options; one is to buy a replacement ink tank same as the one which has run out, the other is to buy refill inks which you "inject" into your existing cartridge.
Personally, I use refill inks, as the running cost is about 1/5th of buying new and I have a copious supply of print cartridges. Some people really don't like using refills, because it's easy to get stuck with a refill kit and the ink cartridge dies or heads become clogged, forcing you to buy a new cartridge anyway. Your gamble, ahh, I mean choice....
I doubt it's computer/CPU related, but, just in case, you could try going to Start>Control Panels>Administrative tools. Double-click on 'Services', a window opens that show all the optional services for your Windows, some running, some not. Scroll down to "Print Spooler" and across from that you'll see "Started", 'Right-click' on this and change it to "Stop". This stops any printing instances that are stuck, jammed, frozen, just will not go away. Now 'Right-click on "Stopped" and change it back to "Start", close your open windows and try printing again.
If you go to Start>Control Panel>Printers and 'Right-click' on the printer in question, go down to "Properties" and when that opens click on "Print a test page" button. If you machine fails to print, a dialog box/window will open to help you troubleshoot it - must admit the questions asked are very basic and it has never helped me but may open some ideas for you.
Please let us know how it went.

Remove the old ink jet cartridge from the printer following the manufacturer instructions. Close the lid on the printer to keep it free from dust and debris while you are refilling the Canon ink cartridge.
Locate the ink tank on the cartridge. Put a 3mm drill bit in a drill. Drill a hole in the top of the ink tank on the cartridge.
Gently insert the needle on the bottle of ink into the hole you just drilled in the ink cartridge. Avoid squeezing the bottle until the needle is completely inserted in the ink tank.
Squeeze the ink bottle gently to refill the cartridge. Fill the tank with a little at a time until the cartridge is full.
Remove the needle from the ink tank. Wipe the top of the Canon ink cartridge off with a paper towel. Place a small piece of duct tape over the drilled hole. Rub the tape to remove air bubbles and to make sure it adheres to the cartridge.
Put the refilled ink cartridge back into the printer. Clean the head of the printer by running the printer software and following the instructions for head cleaning.
