I check the screen resolution but the maximum resolution is only 800x600 and my real screen resolution (not in vmware) is 1366x768

open display settings

Code:
system-config-display
goto Hardware -> select configure on monitor type -> select your monitor resolution type (i.e Monitor 1024 x 800)

reboot your machine and check it works or not.

hope this help.
