Force display resolution to be "real" not "virtual"

Hope there is any solution!

The digital, analog, and TV outputs have different resolution specs. I have only used analog monitors at 1280 and below and haven't experienced the virtual desktop issue.
Consider using a different utility such as MultiRes or HZTool to change/set the desktop resolution. What monitors and utilities have you tried?

Or rather the DX9 runtime doesn't seem to support DX8.1 VXD's. Try testing your DX setup using the older drivers with DXDIAG.EXE or another DX diagnostic tool to locate the cause of the crashes. Also "crash" is extremely vague--please post the text of any error message.
Virtual resolutions are sometime used when there is not enough screen buffer memory for the full image. Use the Radeon's utility to disable any dual-monitor support, including mirroring, TV-out, etc.

The older drivers may be talking directly to the monitor to find its capabilities, while the new drivers may be using the installed (1280x1024?) values.
In "Display Properties > Advanced > Monitors" you should see your monitor correctly identified (what is it by the way?) and "Automatically detect Plug & Play monitors" selected.
"Change" the monitor type if needed. If you're *really* sure your monitor can do at least 1600x1200, try the Super VGA 1600x1200 in (standard monitor types). Monitors can be damaged if you overdrive them, so be *very careful.*
In "Display Properties > Advanced", there may also be a "Display modes" or similar tab with various setting to try.
You may also be able to use the Catalyst Control Center for these adjustments. Explore it thoroughly.

XGA is only 1024x768, so 1280x1024 should have become virtual. If so, that's a good thing. Did you try Super VGA 1600x1200?
If that works up to 1600x1200, then also edit the monitor's MaxResolution in the registry:

Uncheck the "Plug and Play" box and try again with the Super Vga 1600x1200 and custom monitor drivers (reboot each time).
That should work, otherwise you will also need to switch cable types: VGA / DVI.

Those INF's keep the Graphic Adapter from going "out of bounds" and even give MORE that what "Plug-and-Pray" THINKS they can do.
Right here they are. Download, Unzip, Change it in Device Manager (Update Driver). 1920x1080 Max...
edit - note that EVEN THOUGH Win9X is NOT specified, it WILL (should) WORK!!!

installing the official monitor driver - still the same
disabling PnP - no change
installing other monitor drivers - also ignored
The weird thing is that even if i set the official driver, i can still set almost every resolution, including not supported ones.

Amazon review of HD monitor attached to Radeon 9250
Have you tried a VGA cable?
Ars Technica: Radeon 9250 DVI won't let my monitor go > 1280*1024???
Have you tried a lower-res 16:9 mode such as 1280x720 or 848x480?
ATI Radeon 92x0: *16:9 aspect ratio monitors are [not] supported on [Win98]
I recommend uninstalling, rebooting, then reinstalling the Radeon driver with the Eizo driver already installed (and PnP checkbox unchecked).
Then (re)install DirectX 9c (December 2006).
Re-explore the CCC Advanced menu options.
