I have an Asus laptop with a 1366x768 screen. I'm finding I would like to have everything smaller so I would have more room to work. Is there a way to get the graphics card to display 1080p and then downscale it to fit the screen, thus making everything smaller?

I'm running Windows 7 Professional and my graphics card can handle up to 2560x1600.

Yes, and if you actually do that, everything will look like crap. I suggest you try adjusting font sizes. Ctrl+(plus/minus) is an often used keyboard shortcut within various applications for adjusting font sizes. You may also want to adjust these sizes on a system-wide level. What OS are you using? – Doc Sep 21 '11 at 23:54
The card will not display the 2560X1600 on the built in display. That is likley max on external monitor. @Doc has a good suggestion – Dave M Sep 22 '11 at 0:06

Take a look at this guide from Microsoft.

When you find the resolution that you like, press apply.
