    So both my monitors were working fine and fully functioned untill I updated my video card. It now only displays on one screen, but if i disconnect the working screen and restart it shows is on the other screen and vise-versa. Also when i try going into the Nvidia control panel it just doesnt respond.

    Download and reinstall the nVidia card, new or not, from here: http://www.geforce.com/drivers

    During the install read each screen carefully, one screen will have an option to do a clean install that will uninstall all previous driver components and settings before installing the new drive, be sure to choose that.
