Screen Resolution, Xorg, i810 Intel Chipset

I have a IBM ThinkCenter workstation with an Intel i810 chipset and can
only get a resolution of 800x600 maximum. I have read this url dealing
with this chipset and resolution and cannot get anything past 800x600.

and here is my /etc/X11/Xorg.conf

PHP Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier     "Default Layout"
Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
"Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Identifier  "Keyboard0"
Driver      "kbd"
Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option      "XkbLayout" "us"

Identifier  "Videocard0"
Driver      "i810"

Identifier "Screen0"
Device     "Videocard0"
DefaultDepth    16
Viewport   0 0
                Depth     16
I have tried many different Depths 8 16 24 and Modes ranging from "1280x800" 1024x768". I have a Planar Flat LCD and know that is can handle "1024x768" which I have used before. I need some linux gurus.

You may also need a Monitor section with forced settings for the horizontal and vertical sync. The values for these will depend on your hardware, so this is just an example:
Section "Monitor"
    Identifier	"Configured Monitor"
    HorizSync	48.4
    VertRefresh	55.0-65.0
Section "Screen"
    Monitor     "Configured Monitor"
