Having problems with old games in windows 7.

I have an AMD 790gx chip set with ati radeon hd 3300 graphics. When playing Stronghold Crusader the only two resolutions are 1024x768 and 800x600. With both of these selected the game is being stretched on the bottom and top and making it where I can't get to the building icons. The resolution on my computer is set to 1366X768. When dropping the screen resolution on my pc it either doesn't help or the Windows doesn't fit on the screen properly anymore. Anyone know how I can just turn off the game scaling either in windows or the Catalyst control panel. On my laptop the game just has black bars on both sides instead of trying to stretch the game. How would I go about turn this on my desktop.

you could try this, right click game shortcut, at the end of the target line eg "c:\games\stronghold.exe" put a space between " and type -resx=1366 -resy=768. see how you go, I have used this to make some of my games display 1440x900.

Thanks for the idea, but that made it worse. Any other ideas.
