When I try to print a document, my computer shuts off.
It's a strange problem that just started today. I'm running XP Pro and my printer is a Brother HL-2140. I've changed the USB cable, updated the printer driver, checked all the printer settings, and run a virus scan.
It's not happening every time I try to print, but it happens most of the time, and regardless of the size of document. And at least once, the computer shut off by itself when nothing was printing. Right now, the printer is turned off and I'm not having any problems (but obviously that's not a workable solution....)
When the computer shuts itself off, the hard drive and monitor turn off, and sometimes the printer too, but not always. Then, the monitor will turn back on by itself. Sometimes the hard drive will switch back on again too, then turn itself back off, and back on again....
Everything is plugged into a Tripp-Lite Internet Office UPS box.
I've already installed System Spec if you need any additional information.
