Monitor will not get a bigger resolution..
I have a 15" flat panel monitor and i just installed a new graphics card (other than the one on my motherboard) and when i go to ajust my resolution (in windows XP) i have 2 choices, the first is
COMPAQ FP5315 Flat Panel Monitor on RADEON 9600 Series (Omega). This device will only let me get a 1024 x 768 resolution. The second choice is (Default Monitor) on RADEON 9600 Series Secondary (Omega 2.5.9). This device lets me go up to 2048 x 1536, however when i click a high resolution and hit apply my color goes to 8 bit and my resolution doesnt change.

Yes, that is about as good as you will get with a 15" FLAT PANEL monitor.
The three factors are: resolution + colours + refresh rate.
1024x768 + 32bit + 75Hz is about what I would expect from your combination. If you want more, buy a better monitor, and remember that you are paying in performance for the 'looks cool' flat panel, an old fashioned CRT will outperform them any day.
Incidentally, I would not recommend experimenting outside the recommended ranges of your kit, you CAN damage it.
