Windows 7: Issue with Resolution with Monitor?

Issue with Resolution with Monitor?

I know this isn't a graphics card issue, since my laptop was bought this year, and supports resolutions of 1600x900...

Now, I have some games that won't play in 1280z1024. It's any older game, and it's pretty annoying, I've tried windowed mode and most these games don't work on windowed. So, anyone have a suggestion? My ATI drivers are latest, 5650 Radeon with 10.10.

Hello there DS, what games are we talking about? old games? new games? could you elaborate more?

Forget it, i just re-read the post.. hmm, could be the game not being able to play on a higher resolution than 1280x1024, which game is it?

I'm talking about Age of Empires II running on Windows 7. When I connect to an external monitor it works, but if I use my laptop screen, it will start the game, and right when I go to play a game, it minimizes and says the game broke, and tries to find a solution.

My monitor doesn't support these older games running and 1280x1024 for some reason as well. I have no clue why.

Checking the properties didn't fix the game, neither did compatibility. I tried all that earlier.
