Check the display properties (right click mouse on desktop, then select properties, settings, advanced ) and see if there is an option to adjust the sizes of the different displays (Usually there is one for each display type you are using). I have to do that when I use the tv connector as there are no buttons to adjust the display sizing on my TV.

You might also need to flash the bios of the card to get the output to work correctly if your running your card with new drivers but old bios this can cause problems
