Default Laptop's resolution stuck at 1024x768

Recently, I upgraded my laptop's drivers to 5.7 (they were very very old) because the Cat. 5.7 mobility just started supporting 9x00 series video cards. As you can see here:

My laptop is now stuck at 1024x768. I want it in 1280x960, which is what it was at previously. Everything looks streched now.

The bad thing is, I'm leaving for vacation on Sunday.. and I'd kinda like to have this fixed so I don't have to put up with it on vacation!

I've tried editing the registery and adding the value for "DALNonStandardModesBCD1" but that didn't work.

Any ideas?

Why that is the perfect resolution not to small or large?
