Printer not detecting ink cartridge

Hi i recently bought a
HP Photosmart C4640 All-in-One Printer

and i have been getting issues with it.
whenever i try to print the screen on the printer displays
"Print Cartridge(s) missing or not detected"

The ink cartridges i add are brand new and are HP cartridges that are compatible with the photosmart C4640.

Does any one know what i should do.

Thanks

Hi Manvir,
may be you didn't remove protective tape on cartridge or didn't properly seat the cartridge.

Thank you guys for the replies.

I did install a driver on here but i remember i had to install a different one because i have a new laptop with Windows 7 so the original driver that it came with did not work.
I had help from richc46 on installing the driver but it took me multiple tries.

I printer has started working now all of a sudden but when i add a new color ink cartridge i will print only a few times and then it will stop detecting my color ink cartridge.
