How to hack my screen resolution to make Win 8 happy.

Hey there Tom's!

So I just installed Windows 8 on my netbook, went to play around with it, and found out that none of my apps work.

Turns out my resolution is off by less than 200 vertical pixels - the apps all require 768p and I have 600p.

Now, I did this once a long time ago to get Civilization III to run on the computer, but I don't remember how I did it, so here goes:

How can I hack my screen to display (or "display") the required resolution?

Surely there's a trick to making windows think it has what it needs...

(Sorry if this is a double post - Tom's is being odd again.)

I'm having almost the same problem. I've got an old hp 550 laptop(base model) and I recently installed windows 8 on it. But now there are two large black strips at the side of the screen and I cant change my resolution, I'v got a 1280x800 screen so I can't seem to find the problem
