Default Vertical screen position too high in full screen mode

Suddenly, whenever I run in Full Screen mode, the display is misaligned upwards by about 3/4 inch. The information is still there, since I can move the mouse pointer off the top of the screen and access pull-down menus for example. I just can't see it. If I run windowed, everything is fine.

I can't seem to locate any entries in the .conf file to address this, and I hesitate to make any changes in there without knowing what I'm doing.

Any suggestions?

Edit the .conf file and try a different value in "output=..."

If everything mentionned above fails, you could begin to think about a hardware failure and try to reposition your screen directly from its own menu...
