Using KVM switch

I don't think I will be very good explaining what my problem is. I recently replace my old PS/2 KVM switch with a new USB switch and now the 2nd monitor display is bigger than monitor 1 and the image on monitor 2 moves all over the place when I move my mouse on it. They are identical monitors and the screen size is 1280x800 for both of them.

Hope you know what it is I am trying to explain. Having to move my mouse back and forth on monitor 2 to see everything is driving me nuts.

It almost sounds like that monitor is zoomed in...

That's exactly what is it. According to the display properties both monitors are set at 1280 x 800. Then when using the buttons on the monitors to check the settings the monitor on the right (the one zoomed in) says it is set at 1024x768.

I tried adjusting the settings in 3 different area, display properties, Display Fusion, and ATI catalyst control center. Each of these say both monitors are set at 1280 x 800.

Help this zoomed in thing is driving me nuts.

I fixed it!!

In the ATI Catalyst Control Center under monitor properties/attributes I unchecked "Use Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) or driver defaults.
