Did you try adjusting the monitor's own settings to move the screen back to the left?

Monitors have buttons to setup the screen. I use the same monitors for a number of computers, and each different video card setup requires an adjustment. There should be buttons on the front of the monitor that will bring up the settings dialog: maybe a couple of small buttons with arrows or some other inscriptions on them.

Once you bring up the monitor's settings dialog, you can page through the settings until you get the one you want. They will be pictographs of the screen being centered to the right or left, or up or down, or moving the bulges on the sides or correcting trapezoidal problems. You can widen the screen or make it taller or shorter, etc. You'll have to experiment a bit with your particular monitor.

The one I use at this desk has a large moon-shaped button that you push, then make adjustements with the wheel hidden directly beneath it. But most monitors simply have a row of buttons on the front.
