Unhappy Inspiron 2650 Resolution Problem

Hello all!

I'll get right to it: I have a Dell Inspiron 2650 running RH 7.3 and Gnome 1.4. I have successfully installed nvidia's drivers and X works perfectly, HOWEVER, I cannot, no matter what I try get X to display at any better of a resolution than 1024x768! I've searched the forums here for a couple of days, and found out that while many people have been successful with getting their Dells to work with the "laptop resolution" (1400x1050?), none of them have the Inspiron 2650. I cannot find any doc to tell me if I am limited by my hardware (the LCD itself) or not. Can anyone point me in the right direction on this? I'm sorry I do not have an X config to show you, but I'm away from the laptop now. It is, however, pretty much a stock config generated by Anaconda with the driver changed to "nvidia" per the README file.
