Try to right-click on you desktop, goto screen resolution and change the drop down list from mirror to extend.

If you're using a simple "Y" splitter then you can only display the same thing on both monitors. The fact that you're not seeing multiple monitors detected pretty much ices it. You need a video adapter with multiple connectors, each monitor connected to it's own feed.

First off lose the caps. If you continue to shout you'll get no further assistance. 2nd, there are 2 connections on the back panel of that system. Do you have a monitor connected to each one? If not then you can not do what you want.

can't use a splitter, one monitor need to connect to the VGA port, and the other to the DVI port. Just get a DVI to VGA adapter if you have 2 VGA monitor.

As others have already said, the use of a "vga screen splitter adapter" is not going to allow for an extended desktop - it will only mirror the monitors and you will end up with duplicate displays of a single workspace. You will need to either use two different video ports (DVI & VGA) or you can add a second or third monitor using a USB to vga adapter or something similar.

There is no "driver" which will be able to fix your issue.
