Why would a computer reboot when any appliance like vacuum cleaner or dishwasher is turned on?

The electrical circuit voltage drops when an appliance is turned

on. (Lights dim, etc.) A new circuit is needed or you could

purchase a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) to act as a buffer and

prevent the voltage drop. JR
