Ubuntu: Motherboard Monitor no image


First time posting here.

I am running 14.04, and have been using it with my monitor plugged into my nvidia graphics card (GeForce GT 610).

I recently obtained a new monitor, and tried to plug it into the motherboard VGA slot, but no image appears on the second monitor.

If I only plug into the motherboard, no displays work. So basically - can someone explain how to connect the second monitor to the motherboard VGA?

The motherboard is a MSI Z-97 PC Mate.

Below are the outputs from xrandr and lspci:

Thanks in advance!

This shouldn't a problem with Ubuntu. I'm pretty sure it's a setting in your BIOS setup. Hold down the DEL key when you turn on the computer to enter the BIOS setup. Somewhere inside there should be an option for the internal graphics card (whether to have it enabled or disabled). You'll need to set this to be enabled, then hit F10 to save the changes and restart. If there is no such option, the decision is made automatically, and you can't control it. A lot of motherboards will disable the internal graphics when a PCI card is plugged in, without you having the option to change it.
