Utility to Force Unsupported Screen Resolution

    A friend has a cheap and nasty PC (unbranded motherboard, even the manual
    does admit who made it!) with an onboard graphics chip SiS530/620. The
    graphics will only support resolutions of 640 x 400 or 1,024 x 768. The
    machine dual boots Windows 98 SE using the graphics driver from the
    motherboard CD and Windows XP Pro using the XP graphics driver.
    I would like to find a free utility which will force it to run at 800 x 600
    which will be better for the cheap 15" display.

    This was just addressed (but doesn't apply in your case)...

    For Win98:
    Right click Desktop > Properties > Settings > Advanced and check the box
    to have the icon appear in the task bar.

    Use the icon to change your resolution.
