I guess the problem is with the resolution of the laptop monitor.

Once the xubuntu screen is loaded, what is the size of the Desktop resolution you observe. Is it matching with the windows resolution. If not do the following.

Start your xUbuntu in recovery mode and do a xServer fix.

Goto System-Preferences-Main Menu - Others

Add Screens and Graphics

Goto Applications - Others - Screens and Graphics

choose your monitor model and have the resolution of your need.

This should fix the issue.
