I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 and my screen is somehow not centered. Its moved one or two inch to the right of the monitor. I only see half of shutdown, restart, switch user options(luckily I see enough to shutdown computer).

auto-adjust button on your monitor? – steabert Aug 24 '12 at 19:24
tried that didn't help. I think its problem in nvidia drivers. I have option to install aditional drivers but there are 4 versions of nvidia drivers listed and I don't know which to activate(8600 GT) – Juan Aug 24 '12 at 19:28
nvidia-current? It says the complete list of supported GPUs is in /usr/share/doc/nvidia-current/README.txt.gz, so you can try to install it and then check that file. – steabert Aug 24 '12 at 19:43
i manually installed latest nvidia drivers(nvidia x-server say version 295.49) but still have same problem – Juan Aug 24 '12 at 19:50
problem solved, didn't remove old drivers, now it works – Juan Aug 24 '12 at 19:57

The OP reported in comments that he had not removed the old drivers before installing the new Nvidia drivers, and that removing the old drivers solved the problem.
