    Question NVidia screen problem


    HI ALL!
    I have a problem. I install Nvidia driver for linuux on Mandriva free 2006. It's works! BUT i have a little bug. My screen size resolution is 1024/768 And i have 15'' monitor. My screen is scrolled. It is not displayed wholly. Looks as if to place the picture of a 17'' monitor in 15''.
    It is the file of configuration of X-server:
    Code:
    # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
    # nvidia-xconfig:  version 1.0  (buildmeister@builder3)  Wed Mar 29 14:43:26 PST 2006
    
    # File generated by XFdrake.
    # **********************************************************************
    # Refer to the XF86Config man page for details about the format of
    # this file.

    Open a console and login as root, then run xorgconfig to change the settings.
