Ok, general background is that I'm house sitting at a friend's house and they've left me their computers to use, and I can't reboot because I don't know the passwords.

What's frustrating (and embarrassing) me at the moment is that I can't activate one of the computers to use. It's a dual screen, (I'm assuming its windows 7), but when I press the monitor button to turn on, all I get is a desktop that is completely blank and I can't use it. I suspect that I would need to turn on the other screen? Does anyone know where the monitor button is on a Chimei monitor? (The other screen I can turn on is Samsung)... or is there something else I'm totally missing..

Argh. Any help would be much appreciated.

(Also sorry if I posted this in the wrong area, I'm not totally sure what it would go under)

I would go ahead and make sure everything is properly hooked up first. Maybe the monitor plug fell out of the back of the computer of something. If you look on the back of the monitor and find the model number I'm sure you'd be able to find the manual for it online. If worst comes to worst couldn't you just call your friend who owns the house and ask them.
