I had similar problems on AMD64 with the "nv" driver on Debian Testing.
After downloading the latest a few months ago, My year old ViewSonic
wide screen would only be partially occupied, and images were compressed
horizontally. The only solution I came up with, was to get rid of the
VGA cable that came with it, and put a DVI cable on. Now works as it
used to, but my wallet is a bit thinner.
