i810 Dual Monitor issues

hello all. Im having some problems getting dual monitors up and running on my laptop. I have an Inspiron 700m, and am using the i810 video driver. I have tried to use i810switch, but that only clones my LCD display onto the external CRT im using, and messes up the resolution and such, so id rather not use it. After mucking arroung with my xorg.conf for a while i have been able to get the CRT to display, but it seems that only one monitor will work at a time. If the CRT is on, the LCD is blank, and vice versa. Any ideas? heres the important stuff from my xorg.conf:
Screen 0 is the laptop LCD
Screen 1 is the external CRT, i have only one video card.

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "dual config"
