Default Frame Buffer and X screen are bigger than my Display after kernel update

Hi,*
I *updated my kernel few days ago from 3.3.7 to 3.4.3-1 ( both fedora package). From that time, both X and*Frame buffer outputs**are bigger than my Screen monitor. I am using nouveau. KDE display setting is showing that resolution is about 2400X2000 s ( Not the exact number as I am not using that kernel now). But my native display*resolution*is 1920x1080.*


I searched and found this:*http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Nouveau#Framebuffer_does_not_fill_screen_or_is_lar ger_than_screen


I tried to set the display*resolution*by adding *display=LVDS-1:1920X1080 to kernel param in Grub. It*actually*works and changed my resolution but still the screen is still bigger than my monitor and I am being shown only the top left part of display. When I boot with the old kernel everything is OK. Here is lspci;*


01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT216 [GeForce GT 330M] (rev a2)
Any Idea?
RegardsAli

This is the list for the GNOME desktop in Fedora, so it's the wrong

place for this. Since it sounds like a straightforward bug, why not just

report it to http://bugzilla.redhat.com, against Fedora 17 and the

'xorg-x11-drv-nouveau' component?
