My computer will not reconize the ink cartriges in my printer

Answers :

\015\012Read on and see if any applies to you.
\015\012Check that you removed the protective tape. some cartridges have two of these pieces of tape one over the head and possibly on on the contacts to the printer.

Should the level drop below 25% then most of these chips lock up and will not reset.

Re-filling them will have no effect

If you are lucky you should be able to find either a
chip resetter
