Default Custom Scaling Question

Hey guys,

I'm using a Toshiba laptop running vista with an ATI x1200 integrated video card. My screen is messed up and a narrow strip on the bottom is not usable (it shows up as messed up distorted lines). The distortion appears anytime the laptop is on (while windows is running, at startup, etc).

I have finals now and don't have time to get a new screen or look at the contacts or anything, so i came up with a temporary makeshift solution. I changed the resolution from 1280x800 to 1280x768 so that the top and bottom is cut off a bit. There's still a bit of that unusable distortion at the bottom, however, and I was wondering if anyone knew how to scale it so that all 32 pixels in the decreased resolution are removed from the bottom, not 16 from the top and 16 from the bottom. The ATI Catalyst Control Center only allows "Full Screen", "Centered" (which is what I am using now) and "Preserve Aspect Ratio".

Anyone know how to fiddle with the scaling?
