Hello,


I originally went to this site and requested help:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...90#post5133390

to be fair, I am informing you that I am posting on other sites as well. any info of relevance will be share with all websites. here's my problem:


for some reason, when my wifes computer boots up to linux lite, the display is shown about 25% to the left. I have included pictures and you can see how the margin is on the right side of the screen.
this is a dual-boot computer (both are 32bit). the operating systems are:

1. windows xp
2. linux lite

linux lite is a linux distro very similar to ubuntu with the xfce desktop environment. I would have gladly posted on their forum, but unfortunately the website is having technical difficulties.

the display is always perfect when booting to xp. so there probably is no problem with hardware.

linux lite can work correctly if we choose 'previous linux versions', and choose kernel 3.2.0-32 then the display always works perfectly. the newer kernel versions cause the display error.

so to re-clarify; the newer linux kernels have the problem, while kernel 3.2.0-32 and xp work perfectly. I will refer to the newer kernels as 'problem kernel'.

to confuse things even more, a good person suggested I run an update (while in the problem kernel), which I did, and it fixed the problem for one bootup about 4 days ago, but it's back to the messed up state it was before and no changes have been made to cause it. I tried update again to fix it, but it didn't work. so I still have the problem.

here is hardware specs.
the monitor is 19 inch and there is a video card. info is below.


Intel Pentium D Dual Core 945 3.4GHz/4M/800 SL9QQ SOCKET_775

(2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

motherboard IBM
41X0436

graphics card msi
R6450 MD1GD3


I know we could go on using the computer by selecting the 3.2.0-32 kernel indefinitely, but it would be great if we could use the newer version.


here is more commands run from the 'problem kernel':
