Well, first off ,it's dell's fault, not yours. Even Official Dell cartridges are temperamental at best. The cartridge error you are explaining is common with Dells. They even have what's called a marriage issue, meaning the cartridge will work in only one single printer. However, I'm not sure how to fix it. Sometimes, you can install a new one and the other cartridge you never touched gives you fits, and goofs up. I'd say get a new printer. Dell is increasingly getting more stingy with their ink, and truth be told, I don't think their quality (*lexmark makes dell, so stay away from them too) matches HP or canon. If you want the best cost per page, get a canon that has individual ink cartridges. They are easy to refill, and print a great picture. You pay more $$ up front, but you'll save a ton in the long run

Hi try these steps
STEP: Disconnect and Reconnect the Printer Power SupplyTop of Form 1
Bottom of Form 1
Unplug the power cord from the wall socket.
Disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
Wait 15 seconds.
Reconnect the power supply to the back of the printer.
Plug the power cord back into the wall socket
STEP: Clean the Contacts and Wick the Ink Cartridge
Ensure the printer is powered on.
Lift the scanner unit.
Open the cartridge latches and remove the cartridges from the carrier
Take a clean, damp cloth and wipe the nozzle of the print cartridge from front to back.
Turn the cartridge so that you are looking at the contacts on the back side of the cartridge
Using a clean dry cloth, wipe the contacts so that no dust or other contaminants are visible
Clean the contact inside the printer with the dry cloth used to clean the cartridge contacts.
Replace the cartridges in the carrier and close the scanner unit.
STEP: Verify Each Cartridge Carrier Has an Ink Cartridge
Check to make sure the left cartridge carrier contains a black or photo ink cartridge.
Check to make sure the right carrier contains a color ink cartridge.
Remove each cartridge and examine it to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the contacts and the print head.
Replace each cartridge in the proper carrier.
Let me know the status.

The dell printers will not identify a refilled cartridge,but still you can print . i think u have refilled the standard color cartridge and you have the dell 924 printer. regarding the software , the dell printers have an inbuilt software which will automatically detect a new cartridge( not a refilled one). But if you want to do it from the computer you can try this.
click on start-------> All programs--------->dell printers------> Dell AIO 924 printer--------> Dell All in one center.
once you click on All in one center , you will find a page coming up on the screen , and on the top center of the page you will get an option called " Maintenance /Troubleshoot " click on that and then you will get an option " install New Cartridges" click on that and then install the refilled cartridge.
Let me know if it works....

Install old cartriage, if you still have it, let the machine tell you that it is empty, then go through the install process with one of the new ones.
