Did you try using the hardware switch like Jaqie mentioned? Fn+F3, I think.

What about your software updates? are you on 10.5.4, 10.5.5, or 10.5.6?

This is how I solve external display scrambled error in 10.5.6

1. plug in external display (your s10 screen will become scrambled)
2. hit Fn-F3 to toggle display one full cycle, until you're back at s10 display only. 3 times i think.
3. unplug crt cable, wait couple seconds
4. plug back in crt cable. You should now see both displays.

fix your settings. and enjoy.
DON't hit Fn-F3 combo UNLESS you're connected to crt external display. It just blacks out your screen on the s10.
