If you connect an external monitor / LCD TV to your laptop you'll probably find the built in video driver will offer more resolutions -- press the Windows key +P and switch to display only on 2nd monitor.
When on the 2nd monitor right mouse click anywhere on the screen and then choose screen resolution.
A lot of laptops only offer a standard "Native" resolution for its own screen but almost all of them -- even cheap ones offer a lot more choice when an external monitor is plugged in -- either via HDMI or VGA type cable. - Remember to switch the display to the 2nd screen only to get this to work (Windows + P).
For example I have a smallish laptop also which only offers 768 X 1366 native resolution -- but when I use an external monitor I get more choices -- for example - screenshot enc.
