Just to clarify: lspci lists your pci cards - which is most of your hardware. It does not list your drivers. In gnu/linux, drivers are actually called "modules", you list them with lsmod command.

This is not a driver issue. You fedora 12 already has the proper drivers for your intel video card. This problem happens when your monitor does not report its edid properly and linux is unable to discover the proper resolution to use.

You can tell it manually by modifying the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and adding the correct modes.

Note, different distros handle this issue differently - so you could also try a number of live distros to see if any "just work".
