It says there is no cartridge, or does it say that the cartridge is empty?

First, you must realize there are two cartridges. A drum and a toner. If you bought a new toner, pulled out the drum and put the new toner in, you have pulled a DOH! You can't just put the toner in. You have to take your old drum cartridge, remove the toner portion and install the new toner into your old drum and then install the entire assembly back into the machine. I hope you didn't throw your drum out thinking it was all one cartridge (I've seen it happen). This is where reading the owner's manual helps.

If not, then one of the contacts must have been damaged. Remove the cartridge and look inside the machine. See if you can find any of the metal contacts on the side of the inner chamber that is bent or damaged and try to bend it back.

Check the drum and make sure none of the contacts are damaged.

If the unit is still saying Toner Empty, try this. On the left side of the toner there will be a while lever in a semi-circular notch.

Unplug the unit, use a small screwdriver or a key to push that white lever back to the front of the notch. Put the drum and toner back into the machine and plug the power back in.

My dvd rom is showing up on my computer but it will not reconize dvd=s or cd's

Probably a failed drive. If Windows recognizes the drive, there really is no reason that any media inserted won't be recognized except bad media or bad drive. Probably the laser is gone or misaligned. There is no fix except to replace the drive.

Have you updated all of the necessary drivers? Yes your computer may recognize the device in the device manager, but without the proper drivers it won't allow the computer to communicate with that particular device.
