Games and LCD


Hey Everyone!
Im having a rough time trying to get Postal and Soldier Of Fortune to run.
Everytime i start either game my monitor tells me that the Horizontal and vertical ranges are out of sync.
Im pretty sure its because the games are trying to set the screen to 640x480.
Does anyone know of how to override tge SOF or POSTAL settings to make them start up in 800x600 at least?
Ive tried all over the net and as you can imagine finding info on these games is HARD!

SOF STARTING UP
