     I had a similar issue on my computer which was most noticeable in 
tty. I was losing about two letters worth off the left side of the 
screen. What worked for me was xvidtune. It is already installed and can 
be launched from cli.  Now this utility appears to be ancient and I 
think you need to keep hitting "apply" or "show" to see if your 
adjustments are effective, but it worked for me.
