Default Output is shifted to the left

When switching from nv to nvidia driver, all of X is shifted about 15 pixels to the left. The outer-left pixels vanish from the screen, on the right there is a black gap.

This isn't as much a problem as long as you use analog video out, as you can manually adjust the image. But my new DVI monitor doesn't have that option. That's why, when using the binary nvidia driver, my leftmost pixels are off-the-screen, and I can't do anything about it. Open-source nv driver gets it right.

Is there anything I can do about that?

Default Re: Output is shifted to the left

Most display devices have manual adjustment controls. Are you saying that yours does not?

If not, you could try tweaking it with xvidtune to create a custom modeline.

Thanks,
Lonni

Yes and No. My new screen has manual adjustment controls, but only if I use D-SUB. If I use DVI, they don't work.

xvidtune works, thanks.
