Default Nvida module fails to load for Quadro FX 3700

I'm trying to install the Nvidia driver form my Nvidia Quadro FX 3700 (10de:061a) on an ArchLinux system. The card is listed as supported both on Nvidia website and in the README.txt that comes with the driver.

I disabled the "nouveau" module system-wide and I compiled the Nvidia module flawlessly but when I try to load the it I got this

#modprobe nvidia

FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.38-ARCH/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko): No such device.

[ 3175.210712] NVRM: The NVIDIA probe routine failed for 1 device(s).
[ 3175.210714] NVRM: None of the NVIDIA graphics adapters were initialized!
As I said, the card is listed as supported by the driver...
I tried several recent versions of the driver itself (even the beta) but I can't pick up too old ones since I need the 3d Stereo mode support.

Is there a way to force the driver to load anyways? or to disable the revision control of the card?
