Confession time.
At the top of the display there is a taskbar.
At the right hand end of this taskbar there is a shaded symbol marked as Panel Tool Box.
Clicking this discloses adjustments for centering the screen, these fixed it.
After centralising the settings remain for the next start up.

Thanks to all those that have helped.

Thanks for your response.
Applications>System>Info Centre>Xserver shows 1680X1050 so the drivers are doing the best that they can.

My Grub2 tuition was http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/grub-2.html a thoroughly good tutorial.

I generated a script for the Pardus entry according to this tutorial and this is what it produced in /boot/grub/grub.conf;

### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/11_Pardus_2009_2 ###
Adding my custom Linux to GRUB 2
menuentry "Pardus 2009-2 Geronticus emerita" {
set root=(hd0,7)
linux /boot/kernel-2.6.31.13-131 root=LABEL=PARDUS_ROOT splash=silent quiet vga=0x31a
initrd (hd0,7)/boot/initramfs-2.6.31.13-131

This has given me two boot loader lines for LinuxMint then The Pardus entry followed by the two Memory Test entries.  I disabled 'execution' on all of the other entries.  I think that the vga entry only effects the boot screen display and perhaps the fall back vga setting.  The kernel should instigate/enable the Nvidia driver as it is loaded.  I am probably wrong!

Thanks again for your reply

Thank you for both replying.
The monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 2023nw 1680x1050.
The video card is integrated into the motherboard and is a Geforce6100 with Nforce 405.
Both Pardus and LinuxMint have Nvidia 195-36-24 drivers installed although no Nvidia control panel is displayed in the System Settings in Pardus as it is in LinuxMint.
The size settings in the Pardus - System Settings - Display are set to 1680x1050 but I have yet to find a way of checking what it actually is.
As you will appreciate LinuxMint is new grub and Pardus is old grub so I have had to learn about that recently and am confident that whilst LinuxMint is the lead system in new grub my edition of the grub entry for Pardus is all tickety boo.

When I first tried Pardus I also had Sidux and Xandros systems loaded so out of the four systems only Pardus required the monitor to be Auto centered.
A mystery.

I am using a dual booted computer with Pardus as one system and LinuxMint as the other.
When I switch to Pardus the monitor display is misaligned. (The 'Close Button' 'X' is half obscured.)
If I realign the monitor using the monitor 'Auto' button the display is centralised.
Does any body else have this problem?
Other systems which Pardus has replaced did not have this defect.
