You may also need to play a little with the ConnectedMonitor and/or UseDisplayDevice setting.

Yan can also try to setup the xorg nv driver first so you know the setup works, then move on to the nvidia driver.

Post your xorg.conf here too so we can take a look at it.
Thanks for your reply.

Yes, I have an external VGA port and the monitor attached to it is displayed correctly. I have checked my xorg.conf file, the HorizSync and VertRefresh is ok. When blackscreen showes, I can make X displayed in the 'internal' LCD by press screen-switch button but no mouse cursor could be seen.
