    Default Edge of screen is "cut off"

    Hey guys, after a few apt-get updates, and editing my /etc/default/grub (to suit the nvidia card, optimus tech), my screen has become cut off on the right and replaced back over on the left... its weird, i would post a screen shot, but ksnapshot takes a normal looking screen shot.. hmmm

    Anyways, heres a few outputs of configs to have a quick read over to see if anything is causing the problem.

    xorg.conf
    Code:
    # bare-bones XFree86 config to start the server in probe-only mode
