Hyper-V Manager only viewing top left of VMs screens when connecting to Console

Today when our client connected to their Windows 2008 Server and launched Hyper-V Manager to open the Console session on their VMs they can only view the Top Left of the Console Sessions.  Even when they switch to Full Screen Mode they are limited to the same area.  Nothing new was installed over night and nothing jumped out in the Event Logs.  I did a Google search and found a couple others with similar issue but they solved by either Migrating to a new host (not an option) or by rebooting (not a good option).  Has anyone else seen this and have a better option or the cause?

It looks like the VM has the VGA drivers enabled--suggest you check the device manager and check what video driver is in use and then also the resolution settings.

We ended up just doing a restart of all of the virtual servers and the core server as well.  This resolved the issue.
