Low resolution on HP Pavilion G6 Laptop, Intel HD Graphics


Hi, I just installed Fedora 17 on my HP Pavilion G6 Laptop however the maximum resolution is 1024X768 where as my screen has 1366X768 max resolution. I've tried looking for a new driver but everywhere I go seems to say that intel drivers are already bundled up with the OS. Is there something i'm missing?
