Default Why does the screen shift right ?

I use OpenBSD 5.0 as desktop. I use `X` to create xorg.conf which not been modified.

Now the screen shift to right a bit and a black strip on the left.

It is normal using NVIDIA driver on FreeBSD.

Any suggestion is appreciated!

nVidia does not release any information about their drivers unless a NDA (nondisclosure agreement) is signed. OpenBSD does not incorporate encumbered blobs into the system as a hardfast policy. Because of this, support for nVidia is poor at best in OpenBSD. If you can use anything other than nVidia, you will be much happier.

Otherwise, you can attempt to use the nv(4), but this is a very old driver & is not known to work with newer nVidia cards. You may also want to see what kind of VESA emulation is available.
