PCI-E x16 disabling onboard chipset

Ati / Raedon 2400 pci

Specs: Windows 7 64bits

I own a PC with the Asus M2A-VM AM2 motherboard (ATI 690G Chipset).
I need to connect 2 vga-enabled monitors to the PC, yet the onboard graphic card only supports 1 vga port (and 1 DVI-D). I bought an ATI Raedon 2400 HD PCI-e card that I introduced to the PCI-E slot. I modified the BIOS configuration to enable PCI-E and enable the Surroundview.
I equally downloaded the latest drivers for both the motherboard and the PCI card.
Whenever I launch the computer with the PCI card enabled, I get the monitor to which the card is plugged enabled and the other monitor off (as If the PCI over rides/disables the chipset). When removing the PCI all together, the other monitor works as usual.
How can I solve this issue?
Many thanks.

You need a graphics card that has dual monitor connections. You can't use both on board video and an add in card. One over rides the other.
