Nvidia GeForce 6200 - won't extend displays to second monitor

Just tried to install an old 17 inch dell flatscreen as a second monitor and want to extend displays so that my desktop and all programs are shown across two monitors.

Selecting extend displays just shows my desktop background image on the second screen, regular desktop on the first screen.

duplicate displays works as intended.

any suggestions? Thanks.
