screen offset centos


hi all,

i am having an issue with my laptop. the screen is basically offset an having play around with this for the past 10 hours hasn't helped.

i have read articles on xvidtune which aparently is deprecatd to configuring xorg an etc but still my screen is not centere

however this is fixed if i put my laptop on stand by and bring it back on. in this case the screen will calibrate and centered for that one session only .


when i run xorg -configure it give me an error saying

number os screen created does not match number of display detected but can not figure out how to fix this.

my laptop is asus and the graphic card is intel


all helps will be highly appreciated

It helps to provide all the details and accurate messages when asking a question. You don't say what model of Asus laptop, what kind of Intel graphics card, or what version/distro of Linux you're using, under what desktop environment. Also, the error you posted isn't correct, it should be:
Code:
Number of created screens does not match the number of detected devices.
There are options on how to deal with this, like this one:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/16972...tected-devices

Since we don't know version/distro, it's hard to give a more solid answer. Also, this seems to hint at the fact you may have more than one screen/output device...is that the case?
