Windows 7: DVD playback not full screen in full screen mode

DVD playback not full screen in full screen mode

Through my monitor warranty I was upgraded from a 1680X1050 to a 1920X1080 monitor. On my old one when I selected DVD playback to go to full screen it went full screen all the way to the edges all the way around. On the new monitor there are black borders always on the left and right, smaller border on the top and the bottom has no border and is right on top of the controls bar.

Is there something I need to change with this new monitor to make it go all the way to the edges like it did on the old monitor? I checked the vid card settings (Nvidia 8800's) and there is adjustable settings for this in there so I am guessing there mightbe something in the WMP settings I have overlooked.
