wrong display resolution using intel chipset


i'm using a laptop with an intel GM965/GL960 driver, it runs Centos 5.2,
the correct resolution of the screen is 1280x800, however the display
looks like 1024X768, i can't switch to that resolution from the
Display settings window, it doesn't accept the wider screen of the laptop

i would like to know some way to correct the resolution of the screen
so it can display 1280x800,

thanks for your help
