Install and run "nvidia-settings". You will be able to set any resolution, and show any part of you full laptop display on screen.

I suppose "nvidia-settings" cam with you distribution.

You might need to install a full Nvidia linux driver package. The NV driver you are using is generic, it is slower than the native Nvidia linux X windows driver, and might not support all the outputs your graphics hardware is capable of driving.
