Ugraded to windows ten and it wont recognize dual monitors

I upgraded because on windows 7 the second monitor would flicker so much. It was a pain and It would get super annoying. So I heard upgrading might help, but when I did so It wouldn't detect the second monitor, so I am guessing my drive would need updating...Which i cannot do currently. So now I am out of options. In need of any suggestions?
Ive tried: w/ windows 7 before upgrading
Fixing the wires
changing desktop backgrounds
Lower hertz
etc-I forgot the rest of what I tried
W/ WINDOWS 10 UPDATE:
kept trying to identify other monitor- didn't help
Extend monitor
etc
I tried everything i had come across besides updating drive since I am unable to. As these are work computers at a company i work for. Just wanted to see if anyone knew of anything else that might be successful.

1) the monitor is going bad, hook it to another working pc to confirm

2) Did you install the video drivers on the 10 install yet ?

How are your 2 monitors connected to your motherboard ?

Motherboard ? Video Card ?

You can`t expect to run multiple monitors without installing the video drivers.
