Hmm, would say different resolution, it adjusts, but you said doesnt happen on xp, do you have patches you installed on xp which you didn't in your current os, and what about drivers ? when i had a monitor of that res, i got this problem is CS, but a driver resolved it.
Also try changing from different res.
