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

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
