I removed nvidia proprietary driver and installed nouvaeu which solved to the problem (troubleshooting only, nouvaue is worthless to me).
I'm running Arch 64 with Openbox. I installed ATI drivers via AUR. Uninstalled with pacman -Rc catalyst catalyst-utils
Any clue? I don't have one.
Not sure what might going on, guessing a bit here.
It might be worth looking at your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, if you haven't already done so. That might show up some settings that are incorrect, possibly due to your monitor definition stuff not being read properly.
What monitor are you using? Someone may have appropriate settings for the xorg.conf file that will work OK.
I'm running a Samsung, which has a default res of 1920x1200, so all my xorg.conf may not be useful to you, but at one point in the past I did have to specify the dpi, prior to which my resolution was way out of kilter and the dpi setting fixed it. Your problem may be different but maybe worth looking at.
ModelName "Samsung SyncMaster"
