Messed Up Screen Resolution

A little while ago I hooked up my ridiculously large and widescreen monitor to my laptop in order to watch a movie away from my desktop. I had to change the resolution of the laptop experimentally so that the picture displayed correctly on my monitor but now I can't seem to change the laptop's resolution back. It was originally 1024x768 and I've returned it to that size but now everything is kind of blurry and icons and text (and, well, basically everything) are way too big for 1024x768.

I've tried setting the resolution to other sizes and back, but that didn't work. Graphically, 1152x864 looks best but it's too big for the screen. The laptop has been restarted since this all started, as well.

What can I do to fix this? It's driving me crazy!

Can you do a restore to before this happened?
