Make sure your card is well seated. It may appear to be alright, but sometimes it can raise up slightly out of the slot when securing it. Also check the monitor cable for bent/broken pins. Not sure what mobo you are using or if this applies, but there are some older ones out there that require a jumper change when switching from onboard video to a card.

If there is no physical damage to the monitor cable, what you might have to do is put the other monitor on, then go to Display Properties and change the monitor settings to Default Monitor, then switch them again and see if that'll work.
