Default Monitor help

I have recentily bought a 20 inch sharp HD TV/ Monitor. It works great aside from it only supports 1024 768 and 640 480.
MAny of the games and programs i have run in 800 by 600. is there a patch or a program that i can get that will force these programs to run in 1024 768?
Thank you

Nope, the games themselves should have options in them to set it at the resolution it's capable of being displayed in.

You can right click the desktop>properties>settings>advanced and in there you will find options for your card. In there you can generally set override rules that'll bypass the games instructions so you can set your own resolution and graphical settings.

That dosent make sense that it only supports 1024 x 768 and 640 x 480 but nowhere in between. If it goes up to 1024 x 768 it should most definetely work at 800 x 600.
