So you have a KVM with two monitors and I only see you mentioning one system, is this correct? If so, you need another system for that other monitor to work, that's the whole point of the KVM. If your wanting dual monitors for your one system, you need a video card that can handle two monitors and you don't need the KVM.. a little clarification will help as your post is quite confusing of what your trying to accomplish without any details.
