I have NVIDIA Geforce 750Ti installed as my primary graphics card, as I have two VGA monitors I have connected the primary monitor to the graphics card and secondary monitor to the motherboard. So in my graphics settings, the primary monitor is correctly displaying its information whereas in the secondary monitor it doesn't. The resolution for the second monitor doesn't show the option for 1336x768.
