Black Screen on 2nd Monitor after a graphics card update

Im running Windows 7 dual monitor setup (BENQ BL2411). Which were working fine i replaced a faulty graphics card which was an Nvidia 520 GT 1 screen was connected via a DVI cable and the 2nd was connected via a VGA cable.
I changed the graphics card to an Nvidia 750Ti this does not have a VGA connection so i have bought a Displayport cable to use on 1 screen and mantained the DVI on the other.
I have checked that i have the latest driver for the card.
All im getting on the Displayport connected screen is a black screen.
When i go into the screen control panel the 2nd screen is being recognised.

Any Help would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Did you change the input on the monitor from the menu buttons ?

Make sure it`s set to auto detect.
