Yes it is because of the splitter, and no there is nothing you can adjust in Windows to change it. A splitter is exactly what it says it is and will take a single signal and split it into two identical images on two monitors. You want dual monitors you need to use two connections.
Is there not at least two video outputs on the new computer? They don't need to both be the same (VGA & VGA or DVI & DVI, for example), as an adapter can be used if necessary. What is the full model number of the new Packard Bell?
@ RICH271, I see you have posted the same question in two different threads, could you please make a new topic in the Video Cards forum so as not to confuse what is going on in this and the other thread.
