Sony Vaio resolution problem


I've searched the forums and the solutions don't quite fix my problem.

I have a Sony Vaio with an Intel 915 graphics card and a 15.4 screen. In Windows I can display 1280x800, but in Linux, I get 1024x768. I've installed the 915resolution software and set up my rc.local to put 1280x800 into the BIOS table. I also edited the xorg.conf file to include 1280x800. When going into X, I check my screen and 1280x800 isn't listed as a choice.

Any other suggestions I can try?

thanks for that but i still have no idea of how to install ,sorry i really am a complete novice when it comes to stuff like this. i installed suse 10 with no problems apart from this i have tried to follow the instructions but to no avail, words like boot ,bios and the like have no meaning to me at all, a step by step idiots guide i think will only be of use to me ,i hope someone will take pity on me and spend the time to help me. thanks for reading this and any help you may offer kind regards allan.
