Default Problems with onboard video when installing Nvidia graphics card

I recently bought a Geforce Nvidia 9500 GT Video card as when I installed Windows 7 on my system, my old video card (Diamond ATI Radeon 9600) would not work as apparently Windows 7 would not recognize the updated drivers I downloaded for it.

Anwyays, the new video card works fine, it has two DVI outputs but I have three monitors.

I tried to use the onboard video adapter on my mobo....but if I activate it, the computer hangs up and when I restart it, it only starts in safe mode. (Before installing the new video card, I had to disable the onboard video from Control Panel). Hence I am unable to use the omnboard video.

When I install my old video card which is a PCI Diamond ATI Radeon 9600, only one monitor which is connected to the ATI card gives the display and the other two monitors which are connected to the Geforce card, do not give any display.

Is there any solution to this problem so I can use all three monitors as an extended desktop.

The Geforce video card is PCIe and the ATI video card is PCI.

I have a ECS 945 GZT-M 1.0 Mobo
