Windows 7: How do I change / hack the resolution of my laptop in game?

How do I change / hack the resolution of my laptop in game?

I don't neccesarily mean hack it, I just mean make it look smaller, not below 1336x768. The reason I want to do this is because recently I cracked my laptop screen, have no monitor to connect, and my money will be here soon to buy my new oner, but in the mean time. I want to play a game ( Multi Theft Auto ). I want to make this appear like it's some bigger resolution like 1600xNumber or maybe even 1920x1080. Now I DONT mean physically increase the quality, just in game to make things appear, smaller or easier to see because the crack is taking up a good bit of ink around, there is a huge blob about 4 w7 taskbars in size at the top, and a streak comeing out with another big enough blob. Is there anyway to well, hack the resolution I guess I can say? Again I only mean in game to make it easier to see past the cracks? I don't know if this is the right section but I think it is.

-Thanks.

Your only shot is a game mod, and it's unlikely, I'd try to borrow an external monitor from a friend.

If talking monitor, laptop BIOS may need to be entered and vga needing enabled to work properly AND/OR there may be likely some function key combo to switch the other monitor over, just FYI.

If both show up, hopefully worst case is having to get into display properties and make the external monitor the main desktop.

just like he said worse case senerio is you would have both screens showing the same thing

there are Display options that should let you make the newer monitor the main resolution
