Can't set ScrResolution higher than 800x600

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 with an Nvidia GeForce4 Go5200 64MB and I just recently installed FC4.

I want to set my screen resolution to 1400x1050, but my only options are 800x600 and 640x480.

I have tweaked my xorg.conf to death, adding modelines, adding resolutions to the "screen" section, as well as other commands I thought might work like Option "Ignore EDID" "1". But I still do not see an option for 1400x1050 resolution.

I have scoured deep into the jungle that is the Internet to find a solution, only come up empty handed. I am certain there is an easy solution, and that hopefully someone out there can inform me as to what it is.

Any help at all as greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

It would help to see your xorg.conf file.
