Depending on how far the screen is off center, the solution is usually
just to use the monitor controls to move it back into place.

But won't that mess things up for XP? Most likely not ...
modern monitors usually store multiple remembered monitor settings
for different refresh rates. The fact that the image is off-center
in FC3 but OK in Windows probably means that the FC3 refresh 
rate is different than that for XP.

If the screen is so far off-center that you can't fix it up with the
monitor controls, then something else is going on.
