Sounds like the iMac thinks that the screen is bigger then it actually is. If a reboot doesn't help, i suggest to reset the pram or.. what's the newfangled BIOS replacement called again?

anyway, you want this:

If the problem re-emerges, most likely the standby battery has run out of juice. In that case you need to find out if it's soldered on, or removable. If soldered let it be replaced by a technician, otherwise: www.ifixit.com
