This happens in both Gnome and Kubuntu (KDE). I cannot see my task bar and cannot enter commands in the command window and I cannot use the strip of application icons on the left because they are all off the edges of the screen.

I tried updating drivers. Did not work.
Ive tried manipulating the desktop and frequencies. One thing I did notice is that it is using the HDMI channel rather than the DVI channel which works (and is naturally used) with LinuxMint (Which I have now installed and seems to work better). I tried the xrandr command and it did not list any DVI or HDMI channels. Only a "Screen 0" channel.

Help would be appreciated since I want to use a system that is more flexible with multiple desktop environments (It seems LinuxMint only works with one or the other... and KDE is not supported yet for version 11)
