Printing on Network shuts down other computer

  1. I currently have 3 Dell computers on a network. There is also 2 printers. If someone is doing some thing on computer 1 and i go to print off of computer 2, it shuts computer 1 all the way down, not just a restart. Each computer is plug into a surge protector on a different wall outlet. What is causing this to happen? Could the wall outlets be on the same curcit and it is overloading it?

    Could be a print driver issue, assure that all computer have up to date drivers. You might also want to check out your EVENT VIEWER to make sure there are not Save Dumps. (Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Event Viewer> System). Let us know.
