Dell ink cartridges have a chip that allows the printer to "read" whether the cartridge is full or empty. Problems may arise when you refill the Dell cartridges or install a third-party ink cartridge in your printer. The printer can get confused in these situations and tell you that you are out of ink when you actually have a full cartridge. The solution is to bypass the printer ink chip in your Dell 924 printer via the software.

Turn off your printer and then turn it back on. You should get a message on your computer that says "Your ink cartridge is almost out of ink."
Hit "OK" when the screen says "New Black Cartridge?" but do not check the box that says "Complete-A-Print."
Check the box that says "Don't display this dialogue again." This will ensure that you no longer receive any warnings about low ink.
Turn off your printer. Restart your computer. Turn your printer back on. You should now be able to use your printer as usual.
