Not able to see everything on screen without scrolling over, then screen pulls back


I'm trying to fix this screen problem I continue to have (an example: in Evolution, its like my screen is too small to see everything, I have to scroll over down or over, then the window moves over and pulls me back to original spot. I've tried to change the screen resolution and that actually makes things worse. The screen problem is very irritating and I don't know why its happening. I've been using Ubuntu or Mint for years and have never had this problem.

Also, a similar problem but nowhere near as annoying: the sides of either side of screen are black. I can't get the monitor to be completely filled.

I went to Intel's website and they have a few drivers compatible for linux (at least that is what they are saying), but I don't know which one to pick, or even if that would help.

I'm using Ubuntu lts 10.04 lucid lynx
2.6.32-32-generic

I don't think it is any driver issue. In any case I'd load in 11 or try it live cd before I did any driver install.

I have seen where if you set the display size rather small the applications open up larger than display. Make the display a higher resolution then open and resize the apps causing issues. Resize based on the first setting. Then go back to the settings you want.
