That would be pretty small on a 15"! :D

Have you tried PowerStrip,

It is a custom resolution program, it works better if you have a 3D graphics card though.

Good luck :)

I didn't realise that PowerStrip could do that - me happy now :)

I was always under the impression that the graphics card had a big deal on the resolution, I'm currently at 1280x1024 on a compaq mv720 (17") with onboard graphics. I'm gonna' try the software to increase it :ninja:

What res and refresh rate you can use is dependant on both the graphics card and monitor. Do you really need that small amount of extra resolution between 1152 and 1280? If it is an old cheap monitor then you are probably not going to reach that high anyway.
