Upgrade to Mandrake 10 - it should resolve your font / monitor issues. If not, post again.

If you havnt tried yet
start>system configuration>configure your computer should take you to the mandrake control center.
once there choose hardware. then you can play with your resolution, monitor, and graphical server.

So far I'm really lovin Mandrake 10, even though I liked 9.2 it was kind of thought of as buggy till you get the updates.
