Default 3D Mark Vantage wont run on my Laptop

My laptop has a 16' monitor, its got a resolution of 1366x768 however 3D Mark Vantage will not run because my computer doesnt support the minimum required resolution (1280x1024). This is quite annoying. Its an ASUS N61JQ-X1. I have 3D Mark Vantage version 1.1 Anyone know how i can correct this, i would like to run 3D Mark on it, afterall i didnt pay for this thing so it wouldn't be supported on my computer

It should run just fine. TRY UPDATING DRIVERS, oops, Can you set the res to 1280x1024 in the control panel?

Try a lower resolution than the 1336x768. I think that's wide screen for 16", correct? Never saw that issue.

If you're using the free 3dMark Vantage you can't change the resolution. At this point I think your only option would be to connect an external monitor capable of running 1280x1024 or get a better version of 3dMark Vantage that supports resolution setting. The only way you'll get accurate 3dMark scores is if you run at 1280x1024, if you change the resolution you aren't running the same benchmark and thus your score won't accurately compare against other PC's.
