KDE Problem

I have Linux-Mandrake(Macmullen)S.S.E. 6.0 up and running on a Dell (Pentium 166 / 1 gig HD / 64 meg RAM) computer with a Gateway VX900 monitor supported by a S3 Trio64V+ ViRGE card.
The problem: When I'm in KDE and use the mouse there is a distortion on the left edge of the screen and it is especially bad when I move the scroll bar while reading something/anything.

I've already used "Xconfigurator --expert" and selected "S3 TrioV+" as well as most of the custom monitor settings (current setting: High Freq SVGA 1024x768 @ 70Hz w/ sync= 50-90Hz).

PLEASE if you have any solutions it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks...Sean.

try adjusting your monitor to move the entire screen to the right.  sounds like the screen is running off the viewable monitor area.

nOctrnl,
            Thanks for the response but, I'm sorry to say that it didn't help :(  Horiz & Vert sizing and positioning were adjusted several different times, even the psychedelic flash (degauss) button dosen't help. For sake of experimentation, I've down-sized the area so that there is a half inch unused monitor border around the screen and then went back and used Xconfigurator. Every useable configuration that I try still presents the same problem. The computer that I'm using ran Windows in the past and the problem didn't exist...

Also, opening terminal emulation(Konsole) and doing an ls on /etc creates the same problem when initrunlvl@ flashes.

Desperately in search of.

Thanks...Sean.
