OK! It works!!

I don't know how.I just rebooted some times and then right click on beryl icon and selecting Beryl window manager (sth i did before)
I hope it stays that way!

In order to run beryl at start up i need to add "Beryl-manager" at /etc/modules ??

Thanks!

/etc/modules - kernel modules to load at boot time

DESCRIPTION
The /etc/modules file contains the names of kernel modules that are to be loaded at boot time, one per line. Arguments can be
given in the same line as the module name. Lines beginning with a '#' are ignored.

SEE ALSO
depmod(8) modprobe(8) modprobe.conf(5)
/etc/modules is sometimes used to load manually at boot some kernel modules. Nothing to do with Beryl-manager!! Beryl-manager is a user space application.
So no, there is no link AT ALL between the two

I'm surprised your card doesn't have this extension.
But as I said, I don't know these cards.

There are some good posts on this Debian subsection about installing nvidia driver IN THE DEBIAN WAY. Have a look.

to add a new session to your login manager named Beryl (if you use it with kde for example):

create a new file named Beryl.desktop in /usr/share/xsessions and put in it the lines:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Beryl
Exec=/usr/bin/startberyl.sh
Icon=
Type=Application

then create a new file in /usr/bin named startberyl.sh
with the following lines:

#!/bin/sh
export KDEWM="/usr/bin/beryl-manager"
exec startkde

then from a shell write:

chmod 775 /usr/bin/startberyl.sh

Now you should have a new voice in your kdm choice menu named Beryl.
