This was an old problem with the early 9800 GX2 drivers, just got it again while installing my new GTX280 with both the 177.70 drivers and the 177.79 beta drivers. Basicly my monitor doesn't use DVI it uses HDMI only for connection to the PC. Nvidia drives mistake this for an HD television instead of a computer monitor and it screws up the output making the screen very off center loosing most of the left half of the desktop depending on what resolution you're set to.

To fix this follow the instructions here...

Except instead of putting the new line under [nv_SoftwareDeviceSettings], put it under...

[nv_SoftwareDeviceSettings_GT2x]

...instead. The problem only occurs under vista.
