When I upgraded Win 8 to 8.1 I lost my 2nd monitor.Computer doesn't recognize second monitor No hardware was changed and both monitors still hooked up to computer. When I go to "screen resolution" via desktop it only shows a #1 .

When I flipped the monitors around so that my #2 is now #1, it sees that. So I know it's not the hardware.

Ideas OH WISE ONES????

Thanks in advance
