    Since you can see anything you'll have to try a hard reset. Hold the power button I|O down for 6 to 8 seconds for the computer to fully shut down, wait a few seconds and start it back up.

    You could try pressing the Windows Logo key + P, then down arrow and hit enter. Try it a couple of times. It will cycle through the options of PC screen only, Duplicate, Extend, and Second screen only. No guaranties it will work though. All depends on what you did to get yourself in the bind your in.
