Another issue is the monitor: Can you post the make and model? Or the refresh rates
for different resolutions? Maybe you have a widescreen monitor and those resolutions
could possibly not be supported for your card/driver combination.

Install the VIA driver and let us know if this one gives you higher res.

The monitor is Dell M780 Horzsync 30.0-85.0, Vertrefresh 50.0-160.0.
The model is from the data plate.  The characteristics are from
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/M780/Eng/specs.htm.



Horizontal scan range 	30 kHz to 85 kHz (automatic)
Vertical scan range 	50 Hz to 160 Hz (automatic)
Optimal preset resolution 	1024 x 768 at 75 Hz or 85 Hz
Highest preset resolution 	1280 x 1024 at 75 Hz
Highest addressable resolution 	1600 x 1200 at 65 Hz
