Drop all of the page-related settings you're doing manually and only use geometry, even at the \documentclass level. That is, get rid of manually setting

\textwidth
\textheight
\hoffset
\voffset
\oddsidemargin
\evensidemargin
\topmargin

and even

\special{papersize=8.4375in,11in}

Just use

\usepackage{geometry}
\geometry{
  paper = letterpaper,
  left = 1.5in,
  right = 1in,
  vmargin = 1in% (similar to top=1in and bottom=1in)
}
  • I tried as you suggested but something also wrong, not works – numu Nov 25 '19 at 23:13
  • @numu: Can you post what you tried? Perhaps on Pastebin? – Werner Nov 25 '19 at 23:17
  • I added your code. And deleted the unnecessary codes as you wrote above. – numu Nov 26 '19 at 5:56
