Default Multiple X Screens, Toshiba TE2100 laptop

I've recently installed Mandrake 9.1 on my TE2100. I managed to install the nvidia drivers without too many issues, now everything runs on a single screen well. Unfortunately, when I try to set up multiple screens (an external CRT and the internal laptop display) the laptop display stays completely blank. X believes the display is there and in the correct location, I can open up applications on the screen if I set my DISPLAY=:0.1, but I just can't see anything.

I've attached the log file, and a copy of my XF86Config-4 is here. Any help would be great.

Cheers,
Chris.
