I have the same problem with my ATI card and an IIyama prolite E1900WS. It 
starts up on a monitor resolution (2880x900) twice the value it should be 
The work arround I found is to open your monitor settings through the 
configuration window an set the monitor resolution back to 1440x900.
I am still looking for a solution to get it right at startup.
