While loading up Mandriva 2005LE the boot screens etc are showing full screen OK but as soon as I enter the KDE desktop my display reduces by a margin of about 10mm all round. As far as I can see the driver for my nVidia graphics card is correct and the monitor is correctly described in the desktop configuration. When I am using Windows Me, the display is set up correctly therefore I have no wish to alter the settings on the monitor itself when I use Linux.
Interestingly, when the Windows bootscreen displays, the display is reduced by about 10mm all round until the PC goes into Windows itself when all is OK.
(In both instances the display is actually offset to the right noticeably when the reduced version is up but the surround is generally about 10mm)
Has anyone any ideas as to how I can get the full screen width display in Linux?
