Dual monitor information is the same on both

I used to have 2 monitors working properly.
I had to replace my hard drive on my computer and re-installed Windows 7 Pro.
After completing the install, I have 2 monitors, they both show the same information on each.
Under the device manager, it shows only 1 monitor.
Am I missing a driver to correct this problem?

Have re installed the graphics card software?. Once you have done that & from the Desktop press the Windows key & the P key at the same time & then use the keyboard arrows to select the set up you want.
