Forcing native resolution on onboard chipset

Specs: Windows XP Professional, 2.99GHz/1.94GB RAM
My computer here at work is a Dell Optiplex 760, with an Intel 4 Chipset. I run two monitors at work, one on an NVIDIA Geforce 6200, the other just plugged into the onboard video. I just got two new monitors, both Acer H203H widescreen. Their native resolution is 1600x900, which is available on the NVIDIA card, but it's not listed for my Intel 4 Chipset card.

I've tried listing all modes, tried to download updated drivers from Intel (I get an error message "The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer. Setup will exit.") I've also tried downloading updates from Dell, but none of them provide a newer graphics driver.

Is there any way to force 1600x900 on the Intel onboard graphics, or do I have to beg my boss to buy me a cheap video card that will support the native resolution? Thank you!

The only option is to buy a dual output graphics card...
