Xubuntu: Dell D600 monitor problem

I installed Xubuntu 12.04 on my Dell D600. On the Dell site I see in the specs
Maximum resolutions
1024 x 768 at 16.8 million colors (XGA);
1400 x 1050 at 16.8 million colors (SXGA+)

Video type
64-bit hardware accelerated
Data bus
Video controller
ATI Mobility RADEON 9000
Video memory
32 MB
LCD interface
TV support
NTSC or PAL in S-video and composite modes
However, for both the LCD and the external monitor I only can select a max of 1024 x 768 in Display / Screen settings (which is ok for the LCD)

One can imagine that everything looks huuuge on a 26inch !

I can't find a way to have the higher resolutions despite I'm sure I used them before on the same D600 with WinXP

What can I do (in the knowledge that I'm not Linux-expert) ?
