Could Canon iP4600 inkjet printer cause PC to reboot

I recently installed a new Canon iP4600 inkjet printer on my PC and when I boot up the PC with the printer already on I get the blue screen of death and the PC reboots. If I boot up with the printer off I have no problems. I know you are all probably saying, whats the problem, just boot up with your printer turned off, the thing is that with my previous printer ( an Epson) I left it on all the time and never had this issue when I booted up my PC. So I'm asking, what gives? Could it be an IRQ conflict?

I have found my Canon IP4600 quite tricky to install in Vista, giving me similiar problems to what you have described.

It is possible that existing, previous or redundant printer drivers could cause a problem, which could suggest a IRQ (Interrupt Request) error. Have you tried removing any redundant print drivers? If this doesn't work then a clean install would remove any fringe issues and give you a clean slate to work with.

However, I would strongly suggest that you unplug your IP4600 from your PC or USB hub, untill your clean install is finished. Then after reboot, install your IP4600 printer drivers to your PC.

Following this, my IP4600 installed without a hitch.

Hope it helps. I wish you well.

No, please give me more details on your computer and operating system. If the computer is rebooting it's probably incompatibility in the software

Try updating drivers on device manager.
Plug in your printer - right click computer (on start menu) - click properties - on the next screen click device manager - on the next screen there should be a usb device with a yellow question mark - right click on the question mark - select update driver software - ensure the cdrom supplied by canon is in the cdrom drive.
The computer should scan the cdrom for the applicable drivers and automatically install them.
