Part of desktop not there, hanging off edge of screen.

Well, I was watching a movie in mplayer, rpm distro, fullscreen, 1280x1024, it was very nice. Then something happens when I try to get out of full screen... I don't know what, no error messages, but for somereason then, my screen shifted right. I had a black strp on the left, and my mouse goes off to the right... Well, I thought it was just one of those wierd things so I restarted X, the computer, everything. I tried using monitor controls to fix it but I have an LCD display (Samsng 171mp) and you can't change the size of the image, just scroll it left and right... Now here's the super wierd part... I scroll the image until the left is all lined up, but the mouse still goes off the edge of viewability! I line up a gnome-terminal with the edge of the screen and take a screen shot! There is about 128 pixels to the right of my screen! That wasn't there before! I change the virtual resolution to something higher (even though I was at the max my display supported) and tried the scrolling... samething happened! Wouldn't scroll past, but the mouse kept going! Eekk! I am having to run at 1024x768 now so I don't lose any icons. My system is running RH9 with 2.4.20-27.9custom where the only thing custom is NTFS support. It's a dual CPU machine and so it's got SMP support builtin. I'm using my Radeon 9800pro 256mb in the 8x AGP slot and the ATI 3.7.0 drivers. Anyone have any ideas as to how I can get my desktop back to normal at 1280x1024? I really miss that extra desktop space. Any ideas/help is greatly apreciated.
