    Besides having the same problem on my Mid 2009 Macbook Pro, I have a similar problem at home on my Mid 2010 Mac Mini. The screen is shifted to the right about 2 inches, I am also using a KVM switch so cannot switch to DVI or HDMI. Both of mine also worked fine until 10.8.4.

    Similar problem here on a MBP 15" Late 2008. Upgraded to 10.8.4 and cannot get a proper 1920x1080 display on my TV, an LG 37LK450-ZH. I get all of the pixels but on 4/5 of my TV screen, thus I would not call it as the picture being shifted but as being shrinked. It seems as if I am getting 1920x1080 under a 4:3 perspective (picture ratio looks distorted). I am using VGA cable to connect to the TV through the Mini DisplayPort. In order to get a proper display, I have to choose 1280x768, which is not my most preferred option, but it is better than working on part of the TV screen with the rest of it blank. The above problem happens on both open and closed lid environment. Before upgrading it was working flawlessly, so Apple please check better your OS X updates or hire more beta testers.

    I went ahead and used Time Machine to roll back to 10.8.3....works fine again so it is the 10.8.4 patch that caused the issue.  I will wait for 10.8.5 to see if it fixes it.

    I hope we don't have to wait that long. I'm sure that Apple could send out a patch to fix the problem. From my point of view, the problem seems to lie with the nVidia chipset, as both my Macbook Pro and Mac Mini have nVidia chipsets.

    I have the same problem with my MBP 13" mid 2009 since 10.8.4

    The only thing that works me for the moment is to use a lower resolution (I'm using now 1400 x 1050). It's not nice to look at, but at least I can work again.

    So please Apple, test your updates before you release them!! I expect crappy updates from other companies, but not from Apple!

    Same thing happening here.

    Early 2009 macbook pro connected to an external hp display (1920x1080) and getting 5cm of black on the left side of the screen. Only started to happen with the 10.8.4 update....

     

    I'm expecting apple to fix this as soon as possible cause my work depends on it.

     

    thanks.

    I am experiencing the same problem with my external monitor. The issue started right after I upgraded to 10.8.4. The screen is shifted to the right with a black bar on the left.

    We need a new patch. It is time to release 10.8.5

    I use an external monitor often, and am having similar issues, except in my case it's not resolution issues pers, but graphical glitches. It started happening when I upgraded to 10.8.3, and has not been fixed in 10.8.4.

     

    Please see the below videos. Are you seeing something similar?:

    How does one roll back to 10.8.3?  Things like this are why I stopped using Windows.......

    It is not broken. If you read from the beginning of this list of posts the issue began right after the upgrade. The issue may be present with certain types of Mac models. If more than one user experience the same issue after an OSX upgrade, it is obviously not a broken video adaptor, but instead an issue with the patch released by Apple.

    I am experiencing the problem and I also have an Nvidia chipset with a DVI adaptor on my MacBook Pro.
