640 x 480 VGA monitor on software for min. 800 x 600 pixels

I have bougt a marine monitor 10.4" 640 x 480 pixels (VGA). The navigation software I'm using require a resolution of minimum 800 x 600 pixels.
I have tried to "cheat" the software by changing the resolution after I have started the software. But then it is not possible to see the whole screen picture.
I have Windows XP.
Is there a software or a hardware that can solve this problem

A real end run.

Look to VNC and see if it can resize the screen. It will be truly odd to some and you may not realize what a RUBE GOLDBERG solution it is. I am not offering any support to make it work, but offer it as a possible wild end run around the issue.
