Default 3 monitors on 2 video cards

ok, i have a radeon 9700 pro, with a lcd screen hooked on the 1st port, and a 17 inch dell monitor hooked of the DVI one. I have just put in a nvidia mx440 in my pc, and hooked up an other 17 inch dell on it.

i boot up, and i am able to extend destop to monitor thats on my rad card, but i cant get the nvidia one to work.

When i go in display settings i get a message telling me the graphic adapter driver chosen can not be used or w/e, and the default one is being loaded.


When i choose the mx440 in the display settting, the resolution is -1x1 and the color field is blank.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
