Hi people...

I configured TwinView on my system, and before i reinstalled my full system because of FU Partitiontable it worked just fine.

I backuped my XFree86Config, and after the reinstall i copied it back to /etc/X11. I also upgraded the NV Driver but now my left (CRT) screen just turns off (HSync gone, VSync 60 Hz).

Here my XF86Config: (log file is attached as file)
