nvidia graphics driver with multiple screens

i have downloaded and installed lastest nvidia drivers (7676). works cool.

The problem begins when i want to create another screen:
FATAL: Module nvidia already in kernel.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module!

I observe same behaviuor when i stop X and try to start it again (in this case it's enough to modprobe -r nvidia) and everything works again.

I'm using geforce mx440 agp8x on 2.6.5 kernel.

Using older drivers (about 4000..5000 i don't remember) I wasn't experiencing such problems.

any suggestions ?
