Hey all, I am new to the forms and am hoping someone might be able to point me in the right directions.

I recently bought a new computer case (just the case) and installed my parts into it. Upon first boot up my computer did not load the OS and give a disk boot failure (odd considering it just switched cases). After dealing with that issue, reformatting, reinstalling windows, and finally reinstalling drivers I found that my dual monitor set up would no longer detect my second display (from minidisplay port (via minidisplay>displayport and adisplay port to DVI converter (passive))).

The set up worked fine before my reformat.

All other computer components work fine and games run as they did before the case swap/reformat. 

Both monitors worked fine before reformat.

Both monitors work fine independently on main DVI connection.

I am running a Radeon 7950 Sapphire with a Phenom x6 1100T processor, Gigabyte MA990FX-UD3, in a HAF XB case. 

I have looked in/defaulted my bios, rolled back drivers to 12.10 (what i was using before reformat I believe) and installed the new beta driver (13.5). The monitor is NOT showing up under device manger which is leading me to believe that the display port is no longer functioning? However I do not know what would have caused it to stop. 

Does anyone have any clue what is going on? Let me know if more info is required about my set up

Thank you in advance.
