I have a graphics card that support 1024 by 1024 resolution and a 17 inch dell monitor. The screen is really zoomed in and I can't see the entire desktop. I also get an error when I try and change the resolution that says the video card hardware does not support the resolution needed for the monitor. Is there any way I can make this setup work, like move around the desktop or not use all of the monitor?
