What version centOS, Kernel and nvidia drivers are you using? Also, what
brand and model monitor?
I don't have my Samsung wide screen hooked up to my centos, but when I first
connected it to my Mandriva system, I could not get the full wide screen. I
was planning on upgrading, so I did not fiddle with it much, I figured I
would wait to see if the updates in the new Mandriva worked any better. It
did, as soon as I upgraded, the Mandriva auto-detected my monitor and all has
been fine since.
It may bee you need to upgrade your Nvidia drivers.
