I am using LG CRT Monitor with Model No. LG Studioworks 700E and recently upgraded my computer from WIndows XP to WIndows 8, facing display issues

however everything is upgraded except keyboard, mouse and monitor, however all are working fine, only the monitor which shows the screen very big, whichever we try to use and nothing is fitting to the screen and all the page or anything that we see in the screen are big and need to scroll towards the left and right corners to see the information, need a positive answer to fix this display issue. I have already updated display drivers and no help.
