What you are looking for is pixel density. A monitor with higher resolution on the same size screen will typically have smaller text and graphics.

TVs usually overscan. It's a left-over from the old analog broadcast days when the edge of the picture would contain all kinds of non-picture information that would just look like random sparkles if seen on screen. To eliminate the possibility of this spoiling the viewer's enjoyment, the TV overscans - in effect zooms the picture slightly, to prevent these ...

I would verify these things: Try a different monitor, if you have another that supports the problem resolution. Or if you have another computer you can test that monitor on at the problem resolution.
