[sebhc] H89 Power-up problems.

Laser printers can draw 900 watts, so I would not be surprised to see that
kind of a dip.  My UPS cuts in every time I turn on my laser printer.

    Barry is right:  the computer should not even notice variations this 
small.  That does seem like a rather large variation on your AC wiring. 
Usually, it's caused by lazy electricians during the construction of your 
house.  They just stick the wires into the quick connectors in the back of 
the outlets.  You can fix it by going around the room and moving the wires 
to the screw connections on the side of the outlets.  Not a fun job, but it 
only has to be done once.
