Re: my dell printer wont turn back
Power down the computer and the printer. Disconnect the printer cable from the computer. Disconnect the power cable on the printer for 30 seconds or so. Without connecting the printer back up to the computer, turn the computer back on as you normally would. It may come back to the screen that asks you if you want to start windows normally or in safe mode. Start windows normally if you do not know how it got to that point. Once windows is started then go back and go through your shutdown procedure and let the computer power down completely. Now reconnect the power to the printer, but not the cable to the computer. The printer should come back on. If it does not come back on standing alone not hooked to your computer then you have a power problem. If it does come back on (powers up). Then turn it back off and reconnect your printer cable back to the computer. Turn the printer back on first, then power your computer back on like before and let it cycle on until you get to your desktop. By this point everything should be on. Let me know how it goes ,but I believe by going through the cycling on and off of both units you'll get back to normal operation. From your posted problem this is the best solution I can give you. God bless.

Keyboard might be bad or you might have a virus that has hijacked the keyboard.
Make sure the keyboard is plugged into the computer good. Then reboot the computer into Safe Mode and see if the Keyboard works. Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.
Unplug power sources for the monitor and computer.
Hold down the power button of the computer tower for 10 seconds, this will drain remaining from the motherboard.
Plug back in the power sources for the monitor and computer tower.
Power on the monitor first, make sure the monitor power button will turn green then amber.
Power on the computer tower.
Try to check if you were able to see the Dell blue logo just right after you power on the computer.
If you were able to see the Dell blue logo then do these steps:
1. Turn off computer then turn it back on then immediately keep tapping on the F8 key. If options will appear please select safe mode.
2. If you were able to access in safe mode the problem we have is the video card driver needs to be uninstall then reinstall. To uninstall/reinstall the video card driver. Once you access the safe mode go to device manager then uninstall the display driver. Reinstall the display driver using the CD drivers came with the computer.
3. If you were not able to access safe mode then try again step 1, when you reach the option screen then select "last known good configuration".
If all fails from these steps, back up your HD files by asking a local tech to use an enclosure to copy all your data from your HDD to a different storage cause this will end up reinstalling the windows operating system.
Just in case just right after you power on the computer and it immediately gave you the message entering powe safe mode then you need to re-seat the video card which needs to open the side cover of your computer.
Re-seating the video card ut's just like taking it out from the slot then put it back again, make sure it's properly seated.
We are not really sure if the Windows got corrupted or it might be the Hard Drive. Please do this first. Turn off computer. Remove all power sources. Hold down the power button for 20 seconds. Use ac adapter alone. Do this while the computer is off. Hold down Fn then press power button to run PSA. Wait and follow the prompts on the screen. If all test passed then do these. Boot up to F8 then select last known good configuration. If no fix then boot back to F8 again then do safe mode then in safe mode try system restore from the time it was working fine. If all fails you need to do factory restore. F8 then select repair computer. Follow the prompts select Dell Factory Image Restore. Make sure all files been back up using an enclosure connecting to a different computer.
I have worked a great deal with the Dell E177fpv boards and when it is blinking power switch then it's bad. Most the time it's the C204,and C203 compositors that are bad (100uF 10v), and 70% of the time the C159,C154 ( 470 uF 25V are bad as well. now i have replaced them many of time and it had came back to life. i have also found other caps bad on it as well. i know you can order a new board for $39.00 and here is the link. http://www.lcdrepair.us/e177fpv_inverter-power.html Good luck!
