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.
