Two things, it's an NVA3, not NV40.

Secondly i notice the word "Optimus" in your log, which to the best of
knowledge means that you have a mixed intel/nvidia system and the nvidia gpu
doesn't have any outputs/monitors attached, only the intel.

As far as i know optimus is not (well) supported under linux, but others might
know more about that.

In the meantime, the intel driver in principle should work (although the nvidia
gpu may still be consuming energy and doing nothing) if this is really an
optimus system.
