It also depend on how high your video card can support. Have you tried going to the display properties and adjusting the bar to max?

Noticed you're from Utah. I'm a transplant from Provo, Utah but now living in southern California. Go Jazz, still....(don't know if you're a basketball fan but that's the only thing going on up there).

I have a solo as well, the only problem with it being that you cant adjust the resolution any higher

The reason being is that its unsupported by the onboard video/lcd screen, You could check mundocorp.com and see if they have another motherboard/lcd(same size now) for your laptop model but I doubt it, gateway normally only makes one type of each for each laptop.

And yes 98 has an msconfig, I forgot the run command for it but I'm sure google can help you
