screen is off vertically by a number of pixels
I am completely a newbie to linux. Having recently installed puppy linux (pup431) on my sony pcg-c1mah laptop with a monitor of 1280x600, I am absolutely in love with it. It is so fast and smooth. However, there is one problem, the screen position is shifted up vertically, off by a few pixels (30 maybe). This makes most of the application partially off the screen, which is really annoying.
Previously, I was able to install xubuntu (8.04) on it without any problem. The screen was perfectly positioned. It was the speed reason I decided to go for puppy linux. If xubuntu was able to set the screen correctly, why puppy linux can not. I will be really appreciated if anyone can help me with this. Thanks in advance.
