vga to dvi

does anyone know how to get a true digital signal from a vga laptop onto a plasma television? I was reading about the Gefen VGA to DVI converter, but I don't think it will help.
Basically, I want to use my laptop to present software onto a plasma screen in the plasma screen's native resolution. Even if I use the converter, I was told I will still get a 4:3 ratio and have the black bars on each side of the plasma. I want to view it in wide screen (16:9) and have it look good coming from my laptop's vga port. My laptop's max resolution is 1024x768.
I was also looking at some shareware that is supposed to stretch the image without distorting it. Any thought?
