Windows 7: Rage won't play on my primary monitor

Rage won't play on my primary monitor

I just finished upgrading my CPU, ram, and mobo, and everything went off without a hitch. Except that now rage won't play on my default monitor. Other than the hardware, nothing has changed with the setup. All my other steam games play on the default monitor but Rage. I'm at a loss here. As windows sees them, monitor #1 is my secondary monitor and #2 is my primary. For a video card I have an XFX 6870 Black edition. I updated my drivers and Catalyst Control center to the latest versions, after experiencing crash issues with rage, so my drivers are all current. Any assistance here would be greatly appreciated.

Wait, it doesn't play on the main monitor, but it plays? or it doesn't play at all? some games get jumbled up with multiple monitors, rage might be one of them. have you tried disabling all that multi monitor stuff? aslo can please list your full system specs?
