OK. I just solved my issue. I originally had both a HDMI and Display port cables connected to my video card. I replaced the HDMI cable and went with another Display port cable. I also connected the display cables appropriately to each monitor so that display 1 is my primary display and display 2 is my marquee (as shown in WIndows). I also changed Big Box so that it corresponds appropriately. Now everything starts and displays properly. So in my instance the culprit was having both an HDMI and Display port cable to my video card. Just using two Display port cables worked.
