After thinking about it, I have a far simpler solution.
LCD monitors have another method of displaying lower resolutions where they display the required number of pixels in the center of the screen and just black out the rest of the LCD matrix.
Have a look at the picture of the XP requestor below and see if your monitor has the same options which should be accessible under monitor properties.
- The picture shows the 2nd option selected which will give the best clear display of low resolution screens but with a black border.
- The 1st and 3rd options look the same but select whether the video card or monitor resizes the display to fill the monitor screen. Which is better will depend on your hardware. (The Monitor Scaling option appears to be the default).
- The 4th option is to fill the screen without distortion such as sideways stretching into widescreen displays.
For further information see: Definition of Interpolation
In my case I have a Samsung 940 monitor, Asus 6600 video card on a Windows XP machine.
The requestor was accessed up by right clicking on desktop and selecting the 'Settings' tab, selecting the 'Advanced' button (next to the screen resolution pulldown). The 'GeForce 6600' tab was then selected which brought up the pictured options page.
Best of Luck,
