In Windows 7, why are my pictures in my screensaver photo slideshow not centered/cut off?

I have a laptop (running Windows 7 Pro) and a desktop computer (running Windows 7 Pro).  Both contain the same photo's in My Pictures.

When I select as my screensaver, photo slideshow, I select "My Pictures".

There is no problem with the pictures displaying on the laptop's screensaver.

However, on the desktop computer, when the screensaver runs, the bottom 4 inches is black, and the top of the picture is cut off.  What could be the problem and how do I solve it?

Thanks for your help.

I changed the desktop background to stretch.  It did not make a difference.  There is still 4 inches of "black" displayed when the screensaver runs.

Note:  I do have dual monitors.  When the screensaver runs, monitor 1 displays the picture, with 4 inches of "black" on the bottom (and the top part of the picture cut off), while the 2nd monitor just goes completely black.
Does the normal computing (not screensaving) display appear normal?  

When looking at the desktop with the screensaver off,   if you move the mouse to the top, does it go off the screen? (like the desktop is extend beyond what you can see)
Close all apps and then run this fixit

The only solution is to remove the 2nd monitor, as the problem only exists when two monitors (of different sizes) are present.
You could try a dual monitor application to get a more customized dual setup,
