Default Laptop screen black with 8178 driver


I installed the 8178 driver on my toshiba tecra s1 laptop.
But now I have a black laptop screen (DFP-0). My external monitor
(CRT-1) is running fine.... It makes no difference if I configure
twinview or single screen mode. The laptop lcd keeps black.

When in Twinview mode I see that there are 2 desktops. I can
also go to it with the mouse (and drop windows there) ?!??!
So all screens are regocnized...

In /etc/modules.conf I added this lines:
options nvidia NVreg_Mobile=2
options nvidia NVreg_SoftEDIDs=0

I've made a nvidia-log file... But I can't upload it (too big?)
But here is a link to it:

Thanks for any support!!!
