I've been having enough odd problems with my Ubuntu MATE 16.04 machine 
that I decided to move back to my Ubuntu 14.04 machine until I can 
resolve them, possibly at the next clinic.

The X11 issue I'm having is on the 14.04 machine. When I boot up, I get 
a mostly normal looking right hand monitor, but a left hand monitor that 
shows some of the right hand background image, and the left hand image 
moved off to the left so that the menu is hidden. If I slide the mouse 
over beyond the left edge of the screen, things look normal.

I tried running gksudo nvidia-settings. When I clicked on the apply 
button I got this error message:

rsteff@Enu-1:~$ gksudo nvidia-settings

The program 'nvidia-settings' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
   (Details: serial 872 error_code 2 request_code 157 minor_code 25)
   (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
    that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
    To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
    option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
    backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() 

Any ideas on what's going on?
