    Printing causes some of my USB devices to stop?


    This is really unusual, and I'm not really sure what's happening. I have an HP Deskjet D4360. Windows 8 recognizes the device, and shows that it's working fine with drivers installed. When I try to print from any source, browser, windows picture viewer etc. it starts to print and maybe gets about 1/10th of the way done printing, then shoots the paper out, and my printer is showing that it's no longer connected and my internet goes out, because my USB wifi card shows that its also no longer connected. After about 30 seconds the devices will become recognized again and the process repeats when the computer attempts to resend the print job.

    Have you guys heard of any problem like this before? I've reinstalled the drivers for the printer and Wifi card just in case, no changes. I can print just fine from my laptop using Ubuntu, or Windows 7 pro x64. I've tried multiple USB ports and its the same thing every time. Any tips?

    Edit: I forgot a ltter
