If it's a flat screen, your HDTV is the problem. It's overscanning. Try playing with TV settings like "zoom", "picture size", etc. On my HDTV, naming the input "PC" helps.

It's possible to compensate on the computer side (this might be necessary if you have a CRT or projector), but it's better to start on the TV side.
