Windows 7: Disabling resolution stretching /without/ Nvidia drivers?

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Disabling resolution stretching /without/ Nvidia drivers?

Basically, my Asus G50vt-X5's GPU died, so I am obviously unable to install Nvidia drivers. My GPU is broken, I'm over it, but my problem is the resolution. I can only use 1280x720, but my monitor supports up to 1366x768. This makes this image look really blurry and ugly.

Is there any way I can disable the scaling so the resolution is 1280x720, but just with the black space around it, so it stops looking blurry?

ummm... can you change the resolution from Win 7's own control panel?

Right click in an empty area of the desktop, then select Screen Resolution to open it.

What GPU are you using at the moment? I assume the one integrated in the motherboard, what motherboard you have? It should need drivers to work correctly.
