I have a Mobile Intel® 915 Express Chipset Family graphics driver, but none of the options for screen resolution are 1366 x 768.  Is there a way to add a custom screen resolution?

I've tried using the display on another machine, but once again, none of the modes are 1366 x 768.  (this time an Intel Integrated Graphics Controller)

Use PowerStrip http://www.entechtaiwan.com/util/ps.shtm to create custom resolutions that aren't available.  If the machine had it to begin with, the driver from the manufacturer should have it.

This may also depend on the hardware. 1366 x 768 is a resolution of more recent plasma screens and some displays. It may be that your hardware is not capable to display such a resolution.

Though that wouldn't stop me from trying......good luck

In Display properties... Settings "tab"... Advance "button"... Monitor "tab"... if box "hide modes that this monitor cannot display" is set... then guess you'll need a better monitor...

The monitor states that it can do that resolution (1366 x 768) but the computer doesn't have any drivers (not even for Standard Monitor Types) that are that resolution.  I've looked on the LG site (LG 37LZ55 37" High Definition LCD TV) but there are no drivers...

Go for PowerStrip - I use it for my 1366x1024 projector.

I would vote for the powerstripe too.. but be careful projector and monitor.. are two different things. monitors act more volatile to mismatched frequencies... but i heard that PowerStrip does stabilize it, but yet, you can never be too careful.
