YES .. obviously you can't get it to TRULY / NATIVELY support 1024x768, but you can get it to pan and  scale to that resolution (which is 'effectively' the same thing).

Try running:
Code: [Select]
xrandr --output LVDS1 --panning 1024x768 --scale 1x1.28
and to get back to normal
Code: [Select]
xrandr --output LVDS1 --panning 1024x600 --scale 1x1

If that works, you could create an autostart file that will run that command at boot.

If it doesn't work, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
xrandr



Personally I've added 2 menu items that switch between those resolutions
