What driver are you using? What model of card is it? Change it back to the xorg driver and see if that works. If not, try the VESA driver.

i was able to install drivers under mint, and the vga out works alright however i need to use DVI for windows reasons and the dvi output just messes up the screen. it has it cut up horizonatlly and has columns of the same screen every inch or so. its 100% impossible to use. Any Ideas? - im using an NVidia GT 610
