Default strange behavior for my Geforce 5200go in SamsungX30 laptop

Once in a while I try to get TwinView working for my Laptop but I never had success so I decided to write into this forum.
The strange thing about this is, that I have two configs for TwinView both should work but doesn't work for any reason.
To get the point here is my current xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "Files"
 RgbPath  "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
# ModulePath "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules"
 FontPath  "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc"
 FontPath  "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1"
 FontPath  "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID"

 FontPath  "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi"
 FontPath  "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic"
 FontPath  "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local"
 FontPath  "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF"
 FontPath  "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/encodings/"
 FontPath  "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/util/"
EndSection


Section "ServerFlags"
 AllowMouseOpenFail # allows the server to start up even if the mouse doesn't work

As you can see I have two Serverlayouts. When I start with dual then TwinView is activated in single it's deactivated.
When I connect my CRT to the laptop and start the xserver with dual the screen appears on my CRT but my laptop LCD remains black.
If I start in single mode I get the screen on my CRT and on my LCD but on my LCD the size of the Desktop is too big so I have to scroll to see the hole Desktop on my LCD screen. And these are two very strange behaviors for me because without TwinView configuration I get something on both screens with TwinView not and the size of the screen seems to be something accidental because as you can see in the config file the resolution is set to the resolution of the LCD screen with 1280x800.
On the other side when I start the xserver without the CRT connected in single it starts normal.

I have to mention that when I start my laptop and plug in the CRT I get the screen on both displays. This remains until X starts up. So the laptop seems to produce automatic Hardware Output on both displays if connected but have problems with X (console only works) and could only run in Clone mode.

Hope somebody could tell me something.
