1- looks like your not running a high enough resolution. Try a higher resolution.
2- It also looks like a driver issue.

If not I would
Copy all your data out and rebuild from scratch.

If i change it from 800x600 to 1024x768 then the screen portions are the same size, but i can move my cursor and scroll around in the 10" square like a when you open a browser thats to big and you move the cursor to go side to side.
