Windows 7: Desktop is cut in 1920x1080 resolution

Windows 7
Desktop is cut in 1920x1080 resolution


I have a Radeon HD 4350 based display card,
Dual boot PC with Win XP & Win 7 64 bit connected
with a VGA cable to the monitor.
I use a resolution of 1920x1080 for both OS.

Yesterday, I booted up Windows 7 and I noticed that the left
side of the desktop is missing (the part with the start button and
the pop up menu), when I changed the resolution to 1360x768, it
came back again, I opened an application and resized it on the entire
desktop, then changed the resolution back to 1920x1080 and saw that
the left part of the window is "missing" / cut off

I tried to install the latest catalyst control center / drivers, but that
did not help either.

I rebooted to XP, there its fine in 1920x1080, I also tried to hook
another PC to the monitor and it looked fine in 1920x1080.

I have also, hooked up the PC running Win 7 to another monitor and in it
I can see the desktop fine in 1920x1080.

I would appreciate any thoughts about this scenario, as I am very confused,
since everything used to work fine.
