Custome Resolution for lcd

PC configuration
ANTEC SONATA III 500
ASUS M3A78-EH
AMD X2 5600+
4GB DDR2 800
ASUS EN9600GT Driver Version. 6.14.11.7116
Seagate 32GB SATA
ASUS DVD-RX 20X
LG 22" L226W

Ok so, my monitor was connected using normal VGA cable before & I could see resolutions like 1280 X 768
1280 X 720 etc.
I just connected using DVI cable & resolution automatically changed from 1280 X 768 to 1680 X 1050 which is the native resolution of the monitor.
At this resolution things become so small that you can not read anything comfortably.
Now, my pc is not showing any 16:10 or 16:9 resolutions other than the native resolution.
I prefer to have 1280 X 768 or 1280 X720. Things are readable at this resolution & clarity is not compromised either.
When I go to NVIDIA control to Manage custom resolutions, it will always fail the test & without testing you can not apply the resolution.

What OS are you using? Under XP if you right Click an empty desktop space, then select Properties, Settings, then Advanced on the general Tab you can select large (120) dpi settings, and on the Appearance Tab under Font size you can select large or even extra large fonts. Vista will have similar settings. Like that you can use the correct resolution and will still be able to read things.

Yup, XP.
I have already done that.
It helps a little but it also creates a little problem in some applications for e.g. in Yahoo messenger, It starts automatically with windows (which is fine), when I click on close button or try to move its window, it will not work. So, I have to exit it from system tray but after that it works fine.

Also, I already have increased fonts size to large but it does not increase font size in all applications.
So, I am really interested in changing resolution only.

I would suggest PowerStrip, which will let you set up permanent custom resolutions: http://entechtaiwan.net/util/ps.shtm
