    Um... You can't do that...
    Your monitor is made to show a certain resolution. You can switch to a lower rez but you can't go higher.

    1440 by 900 isn't that bad. >_>" You could always hook up to a monitor if you want better.

    Yea. The hardware is not physically capable of providing a better rez than 1440x900...
