You probably will have to go into the system preferences > Displays> and change your resolution to I think... 1280x800, or something like that.

I have had this problem happen with my macbook before, as it is remembering the resolution settings of the LCD.

Just change the resolution in the display in syspreferences, and it should be fine.
