In adjust screen resolution, click DETECT if only one monitor is showing.
You have one monitor working - I'm assuming.
What happens if you switch monitors? Does the 2nd monitor now work?
Are both cables secure to monitor and card?

I know you said it just worked before 7, but did you remove vga cable and, if so, are any of the pins bent?

Try booting up with only the other monitor connected.
