It appear weird after I set Screen Resolution to 1920 x 1080

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with monitor Dell 2407WFP-HC

I usually set my Screen Resolution to highest @ 1920 x 1200 (recommended).
It has no problem at all (like in the picture below).

But sometime I wanted to set my Screen Resolution to 1920 x 1080.
It appear weird after I set to 1920 x 1080 (there are black space in the top and the bottom like the picture below). Normally it will full (no black space) if I use Vista Ultimate x64 or XP x86.

My question is why it appear weird and how to fix this ?

*PS. I have no problem at all with Vista Ultimate x64 and XP x86.

Thanks in advance

LCD screens usually have a native resolution that is recommended.

If it worked in Vista, it might be related to the driver being used in Win 7.
