rebooted yesterday & suddenly desktop would not fit in screen & everything was bigger in XP (ati-radeon hd4770 graphics card, acer 22" lcd monitor).

 I have to move the mouse along the borders of the desktop to see stuff thats off screen.

 I had been using 1680x1050 res (max res of the monitor) but found I could fit the whole desktop to the screen if I dropped down to the next res of 1600x1200 & everything then got smaller. However thats a diff aspect ratio & makes pics & vids looked 'stretched'.

 I booted to win7-64 & found everything bigger there also but the whole desktop at least fit the screen, the res had changed to 1024x768. I bumped it up to 1600x1200 (for some reason 1680x1050 not available) & that reduced the hugh icon size but still have the aspect ratio problem.

 Booted to ubuntu partition & found video look/specs there same as in win7-64.

 Any ideas?

I suspect a damaged monitor cable.
