Question about Brother HL 5050 Laser Printer

1 Answer

My HL-5050 is hooked to a HP PC with XP O/S and after many years of good service, all of a sudden it's turning off my PC like as if it was unplugged. Printer did always draw a lot of power as lights dim when printer prints, but now its really messing my PC!

A laser printer and a computer should NEVER be on the same power strip. Startup on a laser printer causes so many power spikes and fluctuations, I'm amazed it hasn't blown the power supply on the computer, or killed the computer entirely.

If you have to have the printer and the computer on the same power line, add a UPS into the mix, plugging the computer in to it. This will allow the UPS to filter the power and make up for any shortfalls. A basic UPS is cheap insurance.

A bad power supply, OR a bad motherboard. And I hate to tell you, but it's more common for the motherboard to fail first. Especially in those HP/Compaq slimline PCs.

It's because there's very little airflow, and system overheats and burns out. I've had many customers with the same issue.

The good news is you can still recover your data from the hard drive, just take the drive out, and hook it up inside another desktop with SATA connections, or get a SATA-to-USB adapter, they cost about $15

Acer 5050


by default acer 5050 have 3 partitions
1. OS partition (C)
2. Data (D)
3. Recovery partition (hidden).

If you deleted recovery parition, you can't recover your C parition using Alt+F10. Your only option is recovery from cd/DVD recovery that you created. if you didn't create the cd/dvd, you can call acer support to buy the recovery dvd.
