Aspect ratio of the screens. The screens are probably different resolutions.

I had this problem once myself, the only option you have is to make your form smaller
if you have a laptop with an unusual resolution....as far as i know.

I will search my archives. It seems to me that there was an article on how to create a form that would change it's size. It may take me awhile as I have a long week's worth of work but only a short week's worth of time to do it.
