Default Re: Display shifted on LG L246WP

Hey, I know this is an old thread but just wanted to say that this tip saved me today while building a new system! Thank you internet!

To help out any other poor bastard madly searching google about this, I ran into this same exact issue with:

LG L246WP
Nvidia GeForce GTS-450 based video card
Ubuntu 10.10 (maverick)
drivers nvidia-current 260.19.29, and previous 260.19.06

The crazy thing is that those drivers are up to date as of Dec 2009 and contain this problem, but I previously had no problems with an older nvidia card and older drivers (same exact monitor and Ubuntu version). Regression?

There is a newer driver out (260.19.36) but it's too new to be wrapped up for ubuntu yet and since that makes it a huge hassle I was saving that as a last resort. Still, I don't think it would have fixed this problem.
