Default NVIDIA 8400M G black screen

NVIDIA 8400M G, ASUS A7S, Core 2 Duo, Kubuntu 8.10

I successfully intalled 180.22 with
sh -k $(uname r)

But, when i make a restart it quites with BLACK screen saying like:
Checking ... state ...

I switched to ctr + alt + F1, stop kdm

/>/etc/X11/kdm stop
/>edit xorg.conf

change in "Device" section "nvidia" to "vesa" i am able to restart kdm
and have kdm working. So, what does i forget to configure? You can see below my log and xorg.conf files.

/>modprobe nvidia
tell me -> "No such device" ...

(17" laptop screen (normal resolution is 1440 x 900))

t. i. a.
