Default Debian +chipset +wide resolution

Hi,
I have a problem with my debian install.
I have install debian with gnome.
But the systen can't work with wide resolution, the hightest resolution I can use is 1028x1024 (it's not a wide resoluton).
I have a screen with the native resoluton 1680x1050.
I look in the xorg.conf and I see
Code:
Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Default Screen"
        Device          "Intel Corporation 82946GZ/GL Integrated Graphics Controller"
        Monitor         "SyncMaster"
        DefaultDepth    24
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           1
                Modes           "1680x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
I have install too the package : i915-resolution.
But when I do 915resolution -l
I see
Code:
Chipset: 946GZ
BIOS: TYPE 1
Mode Table Offset: $C0000 + $268
Mode Table Entries: 27

Mode 30 : 640x480, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 32 : 800x600, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 34 : 1024x768, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 38 : 1280x1024, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 3a : 1600x1200, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 3c : 1920x1440, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 41 : 640x480, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 43 : 800x600, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 45 : 1024x768, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 49 : 1280x1024, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 4b : 1600x1200, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 4d : 1920x1440, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 50 : 640x480, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 52 : 800x600, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 54 : 1024x768, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 58 : 1280x1024, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 5a : 1600x1200, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 5c : 1920x1440, 32 bits/pixel
I don't understand how can I have the wide resolution on my deskop.
I try to reconfigure my xorg, but it's alway bad.

Regards.
Fabien
