I just wanted to thank you! I had purchased my refill kit a couple years ago when I had a Lexmark printer. I now have an HP printer, and the cartridge I have did not look like the one on the CD I had. How nice it was to come to this site and be able to find directions for my new print cartridge. Thanks!
