display horizantly shifted for redhat 9.0, redhat enterprise and fedora core


I have a NEC XP17 monitor.
I had Windows and Redhat 8.0 installed on the machine before.
For both these OS, the screen is used fully irrespective of the resolution.

When i installed fedora, the display does not use the full screen - it uses it more for 640*480 but the icon size etc is extremely large and not usable. same for 860*640. For 1024*780 the icons and tool bars go down below the screen.

An exactly similar thiing happens for redhat enterprise edition.

For redhat 9.0, the display gets shifted to the right and the full screen is not used.

I can't expand it to fit the screen since it changes the settings for windows then and i can't go on toggling it when i am switching to the other OS.

Any suggestions why this is happening and how i can rectify it?
