Question Boot up screen problem

I just installed RedHat 9.0 a few days ago and everthing pretty much loaded just fine.

However, when the first screen boots up giving you the option to load RedHat or another operating system the resolution must be wrong because the whole left side is cut off. Luckily I can still see enough to tell which I am loading. But it is still pretty annoying.

I'm just wondering if anyone has run into this before. Is this a problem fixable through Linux? Or is it a problem with what resolution my computer initially runs on (and if so is that fixable)?

Thanks for your help.

Well, first things first.. what kind of monitor/brand are you using. I've had that problem on a few LCD screens, but running the auto center seems to fix it.
