Now, that's interesting, I didn't know there were different "kinds" of resolution, i.e "native" as opposed to "induced".

Is there a tool to see which ones are which? Or a list?

Could something like this:
http://en.opensuse.o..._the_Video_BIOS
http://perso.orange.fr/apoirier/

be ported to the "Win32" environment?

Of course separately, so that it won't touch the "universal" nature of the driver.

(pardon me, just a field in which I'm a total newbie)

Is this test inside your driver and suggests only the possible modes?
If yes, I think we do not have a (currently known :thumbup: ) chance ... , again :thumbup: and thnx to Bill.

no. this InfoVBE utility shows BIOS mode-tables and only modes listed by it can be used in my VBEMP driver. It is a separate program. I made it only for getting video tables info for developing my driver, especially for "Manual" VBEMP version.

thnx to Bill.

thnx NOT to Bill but to some dumb manufacturers or lazy programmers? (like S3, CirrusLogic, Trident, Matrox, Tseng .... and ATI) which are not included some needed modes and features in VideoBIOS code and using old VBE 2.0/VBE1.x BIOS calls.
Only 3dfx/nVidia/Intel cards /starting from 810/815G family/ contains correct VESA BIOS EXTENSIONS 3.0 (VBE30) founded long ago in 1998 which correctly support refresh rate switching and other needed features.
ATI waits about 7-8 years!!! after 1998 year before them finaly include VBE30 support in thier BIOS'es.
These ATI BIOS'es also mentioned as an ATI ATOMBIOS family and these card have DECLARED VBE 3.0 support starting from Radeon X700 Series. But these adapters only DECLARED support of VBE 3.0 in their BIOSes. So you may assume that ATI(AMD) cards with 
VBE 3.0 support never arrived at all.
nVidia GeForce 5xxx and later cards also has fake VBE 3.0 BIOSes. Newer Matrox cards can VBE 3.0.
