Second Monitor - No Signal

Hey.

So I connected my main monitor onto my graphics card, and my second monitor onto my Mobo's white plug thingy. My main monitor is working perfectly fine with a VGA converter to the white one.

I want an extended screen but I dunno what I'm doing wrong, please help ;~;

hi you need to hook both monitors the graphics card. usually the motherboard graphics gets disabled when a graphics card is installed.
