HP Mini 210 Netbook screen 1024x600 Intel graphics 3100 External Monitor 1360x768 Linux Fedora

Everytime I connect my netbook to my monitor I thought that the screen resolution on the monitor would use its native setting. However, when I connect it uses a screen resolution size 1024x768.

My question is, is there anyway I can use the monitor native resolution which should be 1360x768?

$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 2048 x 768, maximum 4096 x 4096
LVDS1 connected 1024x600+0+168 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 222mm x 125mm
   1024x600       60.0*+
   800x600        60.3     56.2  
   640x480        59.9  
VGA1 connected 1024x768+1024+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
   1024x768       60.0* 
   800x600        60.3     56.2  
   848x480        60.0  
   640x480        59.9  

Many thanks for any suggestions,

That video chipset may not support that resolution with the driver in use. (I have no idea because I don't use Linux, but I am confident the chipset IN THEORY can drive that resolution.) – Shinrai Apr 18 '11 at 17:51
And xrandr with it connected? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Apr 18 '11 at 18:44
