Need details of the specs, what video card exactly? What is exactly "can't get it working"? PC does not start? PC starts but no image? Image but not working right? Need to know what is happening, when it's happening, what you tried and any error messages.

How is everything plugged in? Are both monitors connected to that video card and only one does not work? Does Windows see the video card properly? Drivers installed for it? If that card is used, it may be a bad video card also. Make sure you read the instructions on how to install the card and drivers for it, with some the order you do things is important.

I won't work with both, the motherboard disables onboard video in most cases when an add-on video card is installed.
