Look though the menus on your TV, turn off overscan in the video options. Some video drivers (like the ATI control panel) have options to compensate for that as well.

There may also be a setting or two about 'native' formats on the LCD.

If there's not an "overscan" setting, as mentioned above, is there an "aspect ratio" or "picture size" button on the TV's remote? Or a similar setting in the menu? Play with the setting until it looks right.
