    did it work ever before?
    if yes then have you tried uninstalling the card and then re-installing the latest drivers from the IBM website?

    Did you try to press FN+F4 several times?

    Also, look at your video driver, try to search for clone option.

    that's what you have to check from the manual of both the devices whether they can work together or not? :)
