What happens when you don't make the monitor a mirror image? It may be caused by difference in resolution (taking a wild guess).
And if the problem still happens, can you switch to the virtual console with Ctrl+Alt+F1? That should show you a black screen with white text, where it asks you to log in. If this looks normal, perhaps it can be analyzed further from there.
