Unhappy Nvidia driver + xorg.conf configuration


Hello everyone, this is my xorg.conf. With this configuration I can start up my X, but Alt+tab does not work. I don't understand why there are two screens. If I leave one screen with nvidia driver written in device section in xorg.conf, the screen gets black after startx. Typing compiz in konsole returns me this error: Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0.
What can I do?
thanks!

Because you have your Intel graphics enabled. Disable it (via the BIOS) and connect your monitor to the nVidia GPU.
