    my acer aspire one netbook sometimes boots with an off center screen to the left with the right half of the screen black. this happens about one time in ten in a random manner. I updated the video driver, same problem. the only repair was a new keyboard.
    Thanks

    If the image is off-centre only until Windows starts, it has nothing to do with the third-party driver (since the driver doesn't get loaded until Windows starts). Or have I misunderstood you, is Windows off-centre too when it happens? If it doesn't affect Windows I wouldn't worry about it.

    My question was not complete. The screen stays off center even when Windows loads. It never corrects by itself. It alsways has to be restarted or cold boot, even then it may take several tries.
    thanks
