Any way to set a lower resolution in full screen?

Hi
my laptop highest resolution is 1300x768. But it doesn't support the 1024x768 in full screen mode. Is there any way to set a lower resolution in full screen.

Thanx in advance.

What kind of graphics card or onboard graphics do you have? You might be able to download some software for your specific card/onboard graphics and tweak from there, perhaps. Other than that I have no idea.

I'm not familiar with using a 1300x768 resolution, not sure if that could be unsupported somehow? Alt+Enter doesn't work? Are you using Direct3D? What resolutions are available in the game, and what resolutions can you run outside the game?
