If you have only two monitors, then it's best to connect both to the same video card, if you want to use the Nvidia driver.

Otherwise, if you want to use both video cards, open Nvidia Settings. This works better with Mint Xfce or Mate, not Cinnamon.
Select the monitor that is disabled and select New X screen. Ignore the message and click Apply what is possible.
Then click the Advanced button. The Xinerama option should now be visible, so select it and click Apply. Ignore the message. Click Save to X config file. If nothing shows in the window, then type /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Log out and back in. If there are any problems, then use this command in the Terminal and post the output: inxi -SMCGx
