I recently got a Dell Latitude D531 from my dad because he no longer used it and wanted to throw it away, so he gave it to me. I have a few Windows games I like to play on a semi-regular basis, so I took the opportunity to be able to play games on the go.

Point of the story: Got the games installed and got to the main menu, and I got a popup stating that only a user can request a screen resolution change, and not an application.

Is there any way that I can turn off the "only the user can change screen resolution" thing, or (highly unlikely) is there a way to change the screen resolution settings of the games outside of the game itself.
