Hmm, if it's not even displaying on the 2nd monitor.. then there may be bigger issues when it got dropped.
You could try booting off of a Windows install disc, or Linux LiveCD while the 2nd monitor is plugged in, to see if it displays anything on the 2nd monitor while booted into some kind of environment, rather than just BIOS.
