Default Display Resolution issue - 05-10-2011, 12:59 PM

I have recently re-installed Windows XP on my Dell Mini 9 and have problems getting the correct display resolution. The setting is currently 800x600 pixels which makes the display seem stretched - faces look fat etc.
I gather from other posts I need to change the resolution to 1026 to 600 but this i am finding inpossible to do as theDisplay Properties records a "Default Monitor" setting of 800 to 600 and the slider to change the setting is inactive.
I suspect I am missing the correct Mini 9 Display screen or MXP driver driver .....but having spent a few hours on the Microsoft and Dell web site i cannot see where i can find the driver i need, Dell has dozens of monitor drivers.
I have also searched the Dell Drivers and utilities disc supplied with the Dell Mini but this does not seem to help.
I am now contemplating another complete XP re-install- can anyone advise to help me to avoid doing this.
Many thanks
