I'm using a Lenovo IdeaPad s10-3t, and its native resolution is 1024x600. Reading up on the 'tubes, I've been able to (as best as I can describe it) "virtually" increase my resolution to either 1024x768 or even 1152x864. (I accomplished this by editing some registry value.) From what I can tell, it then just resizes the screen to fit on my monitor. The problem here is that my native display is widescreen, and these increased options are not, so the screen gets stretched.

Is it possible to change my "virtual" resolution to something like 1366x768 or some other greater widescreen resolution and have it resize to my screen?

Any help is much appreciated - thanks.
