I wonder whether XP is able handle widescreen displays.
No, I haven't tried your suggestions yet, but I will for sure.
Yes, XP handles 1280x800 pixels 32 bits, the one I'm using with VMWare, which gives me access to a full window screen without those annoying side and bottom slide bars.
1280x800 pixels 32 bits is not available
"List All Modes" settings window.
Pls, check the attached different display settings windows (VMW x VBox). VMW is the left image.
This is what a newbie like me don't understand: How they can be different if I have used the same XP installation CD?
