Bug description:
  CID: 201307-14038 Dell Vostro 5470

  With the proprietary nvidia-331 (331.113-0ubuntu0.0.4 ) driver installed, the external monitor does not work as expected in extended mode. It looks like it's splitted and shifted.
  09:00.0 3D controller [0302]: NVIDIA Corporation GK208M [GeForce GT 740M] [10de:1292] (rev a1)

  1. Install 14.04.1 + updated + nvidia driver
  2. Connect an external monitor to it.

  Expected result:
  * External monitor should work in every mode.

  Actual result:
  * It's mis-aligned in extended mode

  This issue does not exist with the open-source driver, or with the
  proprietary driver but in power-saving mode (running on Intel GPU).
