VGA Isn't working after updating to Nvidia drivers

My VGA is connected to the second monitor that goes to the motherboard, while my main monitor is connected via HDMI from my GPU, when i update the Nvidia drivers it stops detecting my VGA and my second monitor doesn’t give an image and manjaro doesn’t see it.
When i remove the Nvidia drivers the VGA goes back to being recognised and gives a signal on my second monitor, is there any way i can have Nvidia drivers installed with my second monitor working ?

I’m still new to manjaro, and I’m not sure if this problem has been answered yet, any help would be greatly appreciated !

The VGA gets completely ignored when i update the Nvidia drivers, perhaps a way i can use HDMI and VGA both ?

has no VGA connector. That means you had a monitor connected to the iGPU, that now is ignored, even tho is still active from BIOS.

Thank you for your assistance, i followed the instructions from the reply you provided and it fixed my issue !
