The problem in question is a screen resolution error for an LCD that was switched from a different laptop. (The original LCD for the destination laptop's backlight died and this is technically cheaper than buying a new one)
In the original laptop, the LCD screen has no problems and displays properly. In the different laptop, the LCD displays incorrectly. Approximately 1/5th of the screen, starting from the right, does not display. From the bottom, approximately an inch to half an inch is distorted and stretched. The screen does not display past the black area, and treats it as though it was the edge of the monitor.
If it helps, the laptop of origin for the LCD was a Dell Inspiron 1521. The laptop of destination is a Dell Inspiron E1505.

Xrandr in terminal comes up with
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 4096 x 4096
LVDS1 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
1024x768 60.0*+
800x600 60.3 56.2
640x480 59.9
VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
TV1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

Is the monitor adjustable so as to make it recognize the blank space it's not using? Or is it not completely compatible?
Please and Thank you...
