win2000 server print problem

I have a small network.  Server is a PowerEdge Dell server running  Windows 2000 Server.   Two desktops , one running 2000 on running XP.   Lately when the users try to print from a webpage to the network printer the server reboots.  Any ideas on what would cause this?  Printing to the printer from a widows application works fine.

re-install the printer drivers on the server (win2000 and winxp).

reboot the server

see if there are still problems.  

the only thing that i can think of is that it's a corrupt printer driver issue

mmcmillen,

I would recommend by starting with the Dell support website. Download the diagnostic tool for your specific server model and run an extended test. This will find and report any problems with hardware. If problems are found, you will need to liaise with Dell support on a solution - as it will be hardware specific.

Next, install the latest Windows 2000 service pack 4. Create a backup when prompted so that you can roll-back if any other issues occur.

Good Luck.
