Unhappy Dell Inspiron 8600, nvidia Geforce 5200 and no twinview

Hi everybody,

after reading many forums and threads in here and after desperate hours with two screens but one of them black here is my problem:
I have a Dell Inspiron 8600, nvidia GeForce 5200Go UXGA on 1920x1200 screen and an external Dell 1703FB flatscreen monitor.
X is working perfectly but I never manage to get both screens working at a time.
Here are my XF86Config and XFree86.0.log, I don't see what goes wrong but it warns (WW) NVIDIA(0): Option "TwinView" is not used.
Please, why?
