Print cause computer to restart!!!

Print cause computer to restart!!!

Print cause computer to restart!!!

HELP.... there is a weird problem i just can't troubleshoot.  When i print using my sumsung ML-1740 sometimes the computer will restart as soon as i print?
at first maybe i though it was from a specific web site or i'm printing from my outlook but i don't see a pattern . Pretty much i 'll print 10 times and 2 out of 10 times the computer will just restart without any popup or error message warning..

ANYONE have any idea how i should even troubleshoot this problem please respond!

RE: Print cause computer to restart!!!

If you're not getting ANY error message and the printer is connected locally to your computer, it may be the electrical outlet. The printer would not necessarily show it but the computer would reboot when it received the extra jolt of the printer cranking up.
Try another outlet
