Funky Monitor Issue
I have a Dell UltraScan 1000HS (17") monitor. Everytime I turn on my computer the image on the monitor is skewed (not centered, or too big). I change the settings on my monitor's front panel so everything looks good (ie. Width = 60, Height = 50). Once I restart my computer the image looks bad again. The strange thing is that the monitor is keeping it's settings (ie. Width = 60, Height = 50). I then need to tweak the settings (ie. Width = 65, Height = 45). I am using a generic monitor driver. My resolution is 1280 x 1024. My refresh rate is 78Hz. Initally I thought this was a hardware problem, but when I had Windows XP installed it works fine. Another strange thing is that I have used the exact same model monitor on my Linux machine without a problem (my old monitor's video cable broke so I purchased the same model). The only thing I can think of is to install the NVidia drivers (I am using the default drivers right now). Does anyone else have any ideas?

What OS are you using ?

& yeah Id recommmend installing the drivers ...
& maybe have a good look at xorg.config or xfree- config file ...
.. maybe something important is commented out ... or missing ...
