Answers :

Sounds like you have the first card integrated on the MB. Sometimes when you install another card, the integrated card disables itself. You may go to Control Panel>Display Options to configure the behavior of your display cards. Once there you can set the main and secondary display. (I assumed Windows XP because you didn't tell).
