Customer Question

I accidentally hit the power button for my monitor. I don't know which one I hit, and can't figure out how to turn it back on. There are no icons on the buttons, so I don't even know which one is the one/off button.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer? And the Operating System (OS)?

Acer S240HL; Windows 7 Professional

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your computer? What have you tried so far?

It's just the monitor, not the CPU. Tried pushing all of the five buttons at the bottom of the monitor, tried holding the far right, then the far left button for at least ten seconds, but no luck.

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

There is only one button for power, that is the one at the bottom right corner, you only need to press it once. Please let me know what happens.
