Exclamation Strange Computer Shutdown

So heres the scoop,

I was called in to work on a computer that was shutting when they would print, copy, receive fax, and send faxes. I uninstalled the printer and reinstalled it and updated the drivers. That didn't work.

I'm really unsure of what to do. Maybe a USB issue or a hardware issue. Not to sure.

The fax combo is from company called Brother.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Default Re: Strange Computer Shutdown

Just an idea, but maybe the printer is faulty and its sending a whack message to the computer when it gets commands? This used to happen to my neighbor when he used to try and print/scan from his HP All-In-One. I tried different USB wires to no avail, at which point a call to HP Support got him a brand-new one.
