I've just installed a Geforce GT 610 Video card in order to use two monitors.  I have a DVI and a VGA monitor attached.  It will only show the DVI monitor when booted up but if I unplug the DVI then the VGA works.  (Yes I'm using both of them on the same card).  I've attempted to load the drivers twice and it says they are loaded already for the monitor.  I don't see Geforce anywhere in the Device Manager.  In the Display Adapters it only shows Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.  Computer is a brand new Dell OptiPlex 3020.

What I'm I doing wrong?
