VisionTek x1300 Card install on Dell Desktop Windows Xp

I have an older Dell Windows Pro xp optiplex gx620. I called Dell and told them I want to put two screens on this system.  They sold me two nice screens and a VisonTek Radeon 256M x1300dmspci card.

I set it all up, installed the ATI Catalyst Control Center. Made sure I had the current version of MS .net loaded since I read that I need that.

I can see one monitor properly, the 2nd monitor I just see my 1st screen plain desktop with the desktop picture.  Nothing else.  My mouse can move from one screen to the other but it still doesn’t show me anything.

I have researched what to do online but have not been able to get my 2nd monitor displaying MS Word or Qb?

Any ideas?

I had the monitors switched so it threw me off.
Once I did that I was able to drag stuff over.
Sometimes I need a Gibbs slap to the head.
