Default screen shifted halfway to the right with xorg nv driver

This isn't related to the official nvidia drivers (yet), but I thought folks in this forum may be able to help me. When I run X using both an old RIVA TNT2 and a less old GeForce FX 5200 via the free nv driver, outputing VGA to a 17 in LCD display, the screen is shifted halfway to the right. In other words, the left side of the screen is in the middle of the LCD, and the desktop runs off the right side out of view. App windows and the mouse can access the right side of the screen, but it's not visible. If I adjust the settings on the monitor (physically via buttons on the monitor), I still can't quite get the screen to shift left enough. My monitor's "auto adjust" feature usually works, but not here.

Anyone seen this before or have any suggestions? If the screen wrapped back around to the left side I'd guess this is a hsync/vsync issue, but it doesn't. Ideas? Thanks a lot in advance.

people recommend using 'xvidtune' - don't know what it is, going to try it out by myself (I'm having the same problem)
