Fedora 16 + netbook + external monitor

Hey folks,

I've got F16 running on an Advent 4211 (MSI Wind) quite happily.

Problems occur, however, when I connect my external monitor and try to use the netbook effectively as a nettop (i.e. configure external monitor only, close lid, continue with USB kb+mouse and external monitor).

Monitor is Dell 2407WFP, but I can't drive it any higher than 1024x768. THeory says I should get this going at 1920x1200 no?

/var/log/Xorg.0.log errors & warnings don't look to have anything to do with the Intel driver:

Code:
[root@netbook log]# cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep -e EE -e WW
	(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
[    34.669] (II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
[    34.705] (WW) Falling back to old probe method for vesa

[    35.361] (EE) evdev: Microsoft Internet Keyboard Pro: failed to initialize for relative axes.
[    35.375] (EE) evdev: Logitech USB Receiver: failed to initialize for relative axes.
The monitor detection section shows:

But the last lines of /var/log/Xorg.0.log repeats the following 12 times:

Code:
[    63.516] (II) intel(0): EDID vendor "HSD", prod id 1001
[    63.516] (II) intel(0): DDCModeFromDetailedTiming: 1024x600 Warning: We only handle separate sync.
[    63.516] (II) intel(0): Printing DDC gathered Modelines:
[    63.516] (II) intel(0): Modeline "1024x600"x0.0   45.00  1024 1077 1112 1200  600 604 609 625 -hsync -vsync (37.5 kHz)
[    63.516] (II) intel(0): Modeline "1024x600"x0.0   51.42  1024 1117 1152 1240  600 617 622 638 -hsync -vsync (41.5 kHz)
Is there anything that can be done to get around this limitation? Or is there something obvious that I'm doing wrong? 1024x768 is a touch limiting with this monitor :-)

Cheers

Duncan
