Windows 7: Computer can't find my second monitor when upgraded to new graphic car

Computer can't find my second monitor when upgraded to new graphic car

So I just upgraded from a GTX 560 TI to a GTX 670 and now my computer can't detect my second monitor.
My main monitor is plugged in via DVI while my second computer is plugged in via HDMI.
Anyone who knows how I can fix this?
I've been on nvidia control panel and tried finding my second monitor there on the "multiple monitors" section, no second monitor there either.

Does windows find the second monitor? Are there any drivers that need to be installed for the monitors?

No drivers required, and no if I right click the desktop to customize the desktops it only finds one of them (the DVI one)
The cable is not broke, it all worked fine b4 I changed the graphic card

If you haven't yet, plug the DVI cable into the other DVI port on the card.

Have you got a regular HDMI cable you can test with using the HDMI port on the card?

Please I need some help.
Can someone verify if the GTX 670 is having issues with HDMI cable TVs?
