If I read your problem correctly, it appears that you are trying to plug a monitor into your nVidia card AND the integrated video at the same time. Unfortunately, you can only use one or the other. However, if you purchase a low-cost dual monitor card (less than $30), you will be in business.

If you know what kind of slot your current video card uses, then here are links to the lowest cost options for each on Newegg.

You need to connect both monitors to a computer. Monitors do not daisy-chain (in general). The exception are some SCART-enabled monitors.

What is your source (desktop)? What is the make/model of your new monitor? Please add a comment with the video outputs/inputs for your source and second monitor.

Many newer desktops have two or three outputs. (Some video cards have display port outputs which with active adapters can support 2 monitors each.)

If your computer has two or more outputs and your new monitor has an input compatible with the extra output, get the appropriate DVI, DVI-HDMI or HDMI cable for your new monitor. See the next section if both monitors have VGA input.

If you have a desktop with only one video output, you may be able add a video card to support two monitors. (Depending on your computer, you may need to upgrade the power supply to support a video card.) Then get the appropriate adapter or cables to add the second monitor. (Note: if both of your monitors have only VGA inputs, check the specs for video cards carefully. Not all modern cards support analog outputs on their DVI, HDMI or Display Port connections. These digital outputs would require a digital to analog converter to give the VGA out.) However, if one of your monitors will accept DVI digital signals and the other VGA, add a card with one of each of these connections and a DVI cable to match. (This is an if needed extra; many monitors still ship with only a VGA cable.)

Then turn off your computer, open it and add the video card. Install the drivers with only one monitor attached. Then power down the computer and connect the second monitor. Turn on both monitors before turning on the computer again. Most of the time, the second monitor should be recognized (by Windows) and the appropriate refresh rate and resolution chosen. If not, you may need to enter the Display settings to set the monitor up.

I have seen some computers/video cards where only one output is initially enabled. You may have to go into the device settings to enable it. (Laptops often need their external video ports enabled in the BIOS.) Bad video ports/cards/cables do happen so RMA if needed.

The USB video adapter, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812225007 , can be added to a desktop to give a second VGA output but it isn't the best solution. USB bandwidth limits are significantly lower than those for a PCIe x16 slot or an old AGP slot.

I hope this helps. Please add more information about your system if you want more assistance with this problem.

(who has done dual monitors with older and newer computers. My old Pentium 4 with a Radeon x1350 video card was fine for driving a VGA monitor and an HDMI monitor (using a DVI to HDMI cable). My second generation i5 and P8Z68 motherboard system is also fine using the on-CPU video graphics for those same monitors. A video card would improve gaming but isn't required.)

Monitor stays in standby from startup


Try it on a different computer. Standy usually indicates not getting a signal from the video card and then it goes into standy. If it works on a different machine or laptop, check your video card.

Duel monitor


Which connector are you currently using? They should be white and blue.(hint: the blue is VGA, the white is DVI). If you're using the VGA connector on both monitors, you will need to purchase an DVI to VGA adapter. Fairly common and can be found online for less than $5 here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814998101

Now, if you're wanting to use two DVI monitors, you'll need to buy a video card that has two DVI connectors already on it, as you cannot convert VGA to DVI.
