Display too large after starting up computer, need help

I started up my computer this morning and noticed almost immediately that my display was too large and doesn't fit my screen properly. I have a 19" monitor and I am running at 1280x1024. Any idea why my display is so huge? Screenshot included

Reset your monitor to defaults by using the buttons on the monitor, see if that helps.

And make sure you have the monitor set to it`s native resolution.

Then you can try uninstalling your video drivers and reinstalling them. You can do it easily through the device manager.
