If you're running an older version of windows, maybe your video resolution is messed up due to a driver problem or monitor limitation. Windows 7 will automatically adjust the resolution everytime you boot up even if the video driver is dumped due to a change. But older versions of windows may not. You may have a video card that is not quite seated all the way into the slot.
