Hi I have a closed domain that I can not add any new utility/software and I would like to set the same resolution to all the computers but have found there no good way using GPO is there a another way? Hopefully using VBS. I have read about changing the regestriy keys but will it work for different computers with different hardware? Is there any other option?

You could either use Powershell or VBScript to call the appropriate Windows API functions. If you do not want to mess with scripting, you could use a third-party utility like qres/resswitch

can not add any new utility/software as i said – yaar zeigerman Jan 14 '12 at 18:40
@yaarzeigerman qres does not need local installation, it would run off any share. But if it suits your needs better, you surely could take the scripting approach - it is somewhat cumbersome though. – the-wabbit Jan 14 '12 at 20:53
