Assuming that:you have some kind of calibration sensor and software in
place already, the problem is your video card. Most cards more than a
year or so old only have one chip set and can only read and apply one
profile, even if there are two output ports. And if the graphics are
on the motherboard, there isn't a good way to do this.
You'll need either a set of two matching cond graphics cards or a new
graphics card. that has two chip sets and the capability to discretely
drive two monitors in order to profile both monitors because each
monitor is unique.
Otherwise, I'd calibrate whichever monitor you're going to use as the
primary and use the second for tools and tasks that aren't
color-criven.
