Default screen 'off center', how to fix?

I've just installed ubuntu 7.04 and have the latest linux drivers for my 6600gt. I have a problem with my display on my 17 inch dell lcd. It is about an inch off to the right, so I can't see the right side of the screen. Compounding the problem, the hard button on the monitor used to adjust it doesn't work (the 'left' button)- only the right button works.

In xp, I am able to use the nvidia applets to 'move' my screen back to the left. I have not yet found this ability with the nvidia linux drivers. Do they have this ability- what should I do (short of buying a new monitor or not using linux)?
