We replaced the black cartridge with a correct new one. But the screen keeps saying Order black cartridge, how do I make that little message go away? ! Thanks.
Also, how do we connect a new laptop to our network so that the printer can be used? Is there a key # or something like that we need to put in for this to work? We have vista.
If both of your systems are running vista go to this link and it should give you all of the info that you need to share your pinter and set up your network! http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727037.aspx

You Cannot override, as the black cartridge is required for all print functions. Both B/w and Color use the black, obviously in smaller amounts in color, but it still requires it none the less. Sorry, I know you were hoping to trick the printer somehow, but with HP printers it's not an option, especially on the Laser Printer models like yours.
If you used a compatible cartridge (as I assume) the problem is with the cartridge "CHIP", very common on compatible cartridges, return the cartridge or replace the chip. The chip is on the top of the cartridge and can be remove.
There is a gray button right of the LCD display that has a black arrow circling clockwise and four color dots (magenta/black/cyan/yellow). Push it until you see the "Rotating to Yellow" in the LCD display, then open up the top of the printer by pushing the big gray latch next to the picture card reader at the right front of the printer. You now have access to the cartridge. pull it out and examine it. If it is a new cartridge, check to see if you pulled the plastic dam strip out (which keeps the toner in place in shipment etc).
The front panel tells you witch toner cartridge should you replace. If a supply memory error ocures then the cartridge should be replaced or exchanged with a new one. The imaging drum unit is also consumable. for "Joe 50" - there are 4 toner cartridges in the printer.
