The maximum resolution supported by my graphic card is sadly 1366x768 . After getting used to my work computer with the resolution 1920x1080, using my personal computer became very painful. I was wondering whether there were ways to cheat and regardless increase the resolution.

Does your monitor support a higher resolution? That's more likely to be the limiting factor... –  Bob Jul 15 '12 at 18:55

Im sorry but your only option is to install a better graphics card. When buying a new graphics card, make sure that the graphics card is compatible with the computer. Have a sales rep recommend one for you. For future reference when asking questions, any problem involving physical hardware can only be solved by repairing or replacing hardware.

Its very hard to fool your computer into thinking that you have better hardware then you really do.

You can try using a virtual graphics card, but I wouldn't try anything too graphics intense.

You won't cheat pixels, but if you want to cheat resolution, you might try this..

Say your native resolution is 1600x900, and you can set windows resolution to even 2560x1440, as seen here: http://superuser.com/a/533751/187737
