Unhappy Monitor Not displaying OK

Hello all
I have installed Fedora Core 7 on a HP D530 PC and i am using a 19 inch Dell E193FPc LCD monitor.I have installed the linux but the graphics come to only 800x600.This is pretty annoying.
The xorg.conf file doesnt have the Screen section to change the values.
What can i do to change the settings to atleast 1024 x 768

You can try something like as root running at runlevel 3;

system-config-display --reconfig --set-depth=24 --set-resolution=1024x768 --set-driver=i810

But it would be helpful if you were to provide about the graphics interface for the system; /sbin/lspci -v
