Hi suhaimi_sj (and all the others),
I also have this Compal notebook (I guess it is a CY27, because this appears in the "drivers CD"), and I have the same problem!!!!!
. I canīt say exactly the model, because the brazilian company the resells the notebook removed all the original identifying tags. It is a Celeron 2.2GHz, with a "Intel Corp. 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device". Here is the full lspci output:

Have you succeded in getting 1024x768 to work? After searching on the net for days, I found out that it seems that some versions of the 855GM vbios do not have all modes listed in it
. For instance, in my notebook, Xorg claims that only the "800x600" and "640x480" modes are available. Probably, the Windows driver is able to bypass the vbios.
I have tried everything: Intel drivers, Xfree86 4.4.0, changing modelines, forcing modes, enable/disable DRI/Dual head, last version of kernel, etc., etc., and combinations! Nothing works! I also tried some utilities that I found on the net, that are supposed to replace a given mode by another:
They did not work for me, but maybe they will work for you.
Anyway, the best solution appears to be a BIOS update, to include the 1024x768 mode in vbios. The upgraded Vbios is available at Intel:
but, the producer of the notebook (Compal!) has to ship a BIOS update with the new vbios in it.
Did you get your notebook from Compal? Can you contact Compal?
Can someone contact Compal?
The BIOS setup utility says that the Bios is version "Phoenix Bios1.04".
