Dual monitors issues

Hello - Long ago I installed a Video Card Nvidia GeForce 7100GS - and have had my monitor plugged into that port and works fine. I go and add a 2nd monitor to the original port and it does NOT work. I have tried enabling/disabling device drivers and that does not seem to work either. I go into Advanced Display settings and altho I have a choice of 2 monitors, it only shows each monitor as being connected to the Video Card I installed - basically, my computer doesn't seem to recognize the original port that came with computer.
I have Vista 32bit Home Premium on a Gateway GT5228.

Many thanks for any suggestions!

When you have a discrete card in your computer the integrated is disabled.

Ok, so I imagine the 'integrated' is the port that came with the computer, the Port/card that I did NOT install? Anyway to re-enable it? As I was told this is how to do a "Dual Monitor" by adding a graphics card.

Thanks though as I did NOT know that.

Vista has problems running two different graphics cards. Are there not two ports on your 7100GS?

There is, but one is bigger than the other - my monitor (both monitors can only fit into the "smaller" of the two ports that are on the video card) - what is that other port than? Or, is there a way to fit the 'second' monitor into the 'larger' port on the video card (7100 GS)?
