Windows 7 doesn't recognize second monitor

So i recently factory restarted my computer and like it said unplugged everything except keyboard mouse and monitor. I had 2 monitors plugged in so i thought that didn't matter. So when everything was finished i logged in and my second monitor was duplicating the first one. So i went to screen resolution and it said i only had one monitor and i dont have a second one. But my second one is plugged in and its duplicating the first monitor, so screen resolution didnt help, I cant "extend these displays" cause i "dont have a second one"
Any help?

I'll ask the obvious. Did you reinstall the drivers for your graphics card?

And please fill out your system specs so that we can help you better.
