resolution 1366x768 does not look proper in Debian Wheezy


I have a monitor with native resolution 1366x768 and I use Debian Wheezy. If I keep this resolution then the items on the desktop are partially "beyond" the screen on the right side (a few pixels). If I change the resolution to 1360x768 then all items on the desktop are visible entirely on the screen, but the image looks a little blurry as this is not the native resolution of my monitor. Is there a way to fix this problem?

When the picture is slightly to the right like you describe, (1366x768) the monitor is running at it's fastest resolution and is barely locking the picture, because the horizontal is too fast.There are several 1366x768 modes and your system is using the fastest one the equipment will let it. It's actually _too_ fast imo. Run xrandr --verbose and you can read, among other things, the horizontal frequency (in khz). Reduce this figure slightly. In /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, you can set

(Take my example of 55.6 Khz)

HorizSync 31.5 - 50

and see if that fixes it. It you cut too much you lose your top rates and the remaining ones blink. Cut just enough.

I tried the command you said and I got the following:

However I have no file named /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d or anything similar

What do I do now? I tried to check the monitor settings but anything that I do still maintains the "hidden" portion of the few pixels on the right side (anoying because the scrolling is hidden and the closing "x" icon of the windows when maximized on the screen).

Code:
1366x768 (0x13b) 62.9MHz *current
h: width 1366 start 0 end 0 total 1366 skew 0 clock 46.1KHz
v: height 768 start 0 end 0 total 768 clock 60.0Hz
OK, that's all within the reach of things. No need to alter anything, unless your monitor is a n c i e n t. Can you correct the picture using the OSD of the monitor? It's no harm posting details of the monitor, graphics card & driver in case they give others ideas. Are you sure you had the --verbose on that? I get this type of thing.

Code:
	scaling mode:	Full aspect
		supported: None         Full         Center       Full aspect 
  1600x900 (0x46)  100.0MHz -HSync -VSync *current +preferred
        h: width  1600 start 1648 end 1680 total 1798 skew    0 clock   55.6KHz
        v: height  900 start  903 end  909 total  926           clock   60.1Hz
The numbers mean:1600 - right of screen; 1648 - right of invisible area. To allow for crt flyback, there is a delay until 1680 = full left(guessing here); 1798=right of (left side) invisible area. The next dot is 0, meaning the left of the invisible area. You're not getting that stuff, and I wonder why.
