# aptitude install 915resolution

Xorg correctly discovers that the best monitor mode is 1280x800, however this 
mode is not available in the bios for selection by default. The above package 
adds modification during the startup sequence that adds the missing 
resolution to the bios, so it can be selected by xorg.

The lines in the log  that hints to what the problem is are the following:

(II) I810(0): Not using mode "1280x800" (no mode of this name)
(--) I810(0): Virtual size is 1024x768 (pitch 1024)
(**) I810(0):  Built-in mode "1024x768"
(--) I810(0): Display dimensions: (330, 210) mm
(--) I810(0): DPI set to (78, 92)
