Custom screen resolution on laptop screen?

I have a dell XPS laptop with the native screen resolution of 1440x900.

The nVidia properties show 1440x900 as the max resolution so do the monitor properties. The "list all modes" also has the mentioned resolution as the maximum. Is there a way to increase it beyond this ?


i do not mind incompatibility or distorted view ..just wanna know if this is possible in any way

    No, you simply can't.

    It isn't because things won't be compatible or you'll get distorted view, but going beyond the max resolution is beyond your VGA/video/graphic card's ability, so it can't do it.

    Your monitor only has 1440 times 900 pixels if you go beyond that you will have a floating screen which was use for a while, but is pretty annoying after a few minutes. No, you can not go beyond that resolution, but you can make your desktop larger than your screen.

    No. With LCD monitors the resolution is determined by the number of pixels it has. That is the maximum because that is the physical number of pixels the screen has.

    I don't think so, if nVidia lists this as the maximum..

    if u need more space to work, try to attach another external monitor via ur laptop VGA connector.

    The ones listed are the ones compatible with your onboard graphics card, so likely not.
