Ok, I need to output my notebook to an old monitor, but the resolution+color depth+frequency are too high.

I cannoth put the frequency below 60hz, the color depth below 16bit, and the resolution by 800x600. If I can get it down to 640x480, I can prolly use the monitor though.

This is a presario 1201z notebook, but I installed my own copy of windows xp and am using its drivers (as I could not find compaq drivers for it).

Any ideas on a registry file or sytem file I can edit to add the resolution (I know there was one in windows 98, but this isn't 98, and the file isn't there.)

link is broken, but someone showed me a way to add display settings:

go to the display settings panel --> click advanced --> select the adapter tab --> click list all modes --> select desired mode.

btw: if that's the one that shows all Softpaqs, you think I'm gonna search through it, they don't list the 1201z modle there, and just limiting it to Rage mobility drivers will probably still be huge.
