Hi ndion35. Welcome to Geeks to Go. Use the event viewer to look for some clues. Go to start, my computer, right click manage, event viewer. Look for ones with a red x corresponding to the time of the crash. Right click properties to view details. You can also send a report to M$ and view their knowledge base for more information and possible corrective action. If this happens mainly when printing it could be a driver issue. Crashes/random reboots are usually caused by heat, memory, driver issues or the power supply.
