Unable to see anything --- Windows 8

While trying to setup dual monitors on my computer,  I must have messed up something.  I hate Windows 8.   Anyway  ---  I know that system boots up (during posting I can see things and mover around); however I just see a blue screen with nothing else on it.   I can see the mouse moving left to right; top to bottom;   however I am unable to logon and do anything.  Not sure what I did ..... what trying to get the split Super VGA monitors to extend as one single screen.   I can see during diag  (that the screen info coming from the card is:  1360X768  (believe that to be out of the monitors range)-----   I can't find a way to correct the problem.  I was and intend to install another video card  (better functionality)  DVI and see that will allow me to correct the problem.    How can I correct this problem and get back to using my computer.

I have tried the windows key and D (for desktop)  Nothing,  I have tried pushing all of the F-keys  (still nothing).

I agree with joewinograd, it seems like a possible driver issue with that adapter you plugged in. Disconnect the second monitor and install the driver first. Then plug it in and see what happens. Also, try hitting Windows + P  to see if you get the dialog for extending screens, or duplicating.
you can even test with each monitor - and with each video card separately
Hi misterd,
Where do things stand on this issue? Thanks, Joe
