well, i finally got it to render at 1680x1050, but the size of my desktop is 
fixed at about 1.5" outside the physical size of the lcd (and about 3/8" top 
and bottom).  ive dont quite a bit of googling, and i am now trying to figure 
out if there is a way to constain or shrink the desktop down, so that i will 
be at the edges of my screen?
