You might try using arandr to change the display settings a bit.  I find
it to be the most intuitive and useful app for displays.
There must be a way to fix your issue!  As you know persistence will pay

Just think how far Lubuntu has come.  14.04 is amazing (minus the
nm-applet bug, and a few others)!
