bit in addition to getting the newest driver you can find
from both the laptop manufacturer and chipset manufacturer.

I was going to suggest S3's website for the latter but their

integrated graphics driver from Via's 'site:

It may not support the resolution you need either, but it
seems the best chance you have.  Perhaps Powerstrip can do
this if the driver can't.
