Default computer resetted automatically

Hi
My computer resetted itself automatically. I have a PSC2410 plugged into the USB port. i was trying to scan something and the scanner was not working, so i pulled out the usb cable, and the computer reset itself.

do you guys think it is a serious problem?

I think you might have a serious PSU problem. Mine restarted randomly too when I attached a device. That happens when your PSU isn't rate very high. What PSU do you have?

you mean to say that my PSU load went a bit high and my machine could not cope with it and my processor issued a reset instruction

you mean to say what is the wattage of my PSU, i will check.

but the scanner/printer was plugged into the USB port? and it gets its power from its own source

my PSU reads these values, do you think it should have resetted?

180watts on the +3.3V and +5V rails(?) and 180watts on the +12V rail
giving a total of 280 watts(how is 180+180 = 280 watts)?

do you think it should have resetted when i removed the HP PSC2410?
