The netbook laptops - all brands not just Dell - have very limited resolution capabilities.  I had a Samsung Netbook and could not change the resolution.  There are some rogue tweaks around the internet and on YouTube showing how to change the resolution on some Netbook video systems.  I was never able to get mine to change resolution.

Here is instructions to change your screen resolution. Press the Windows Logo + r. A run dialog will appear. Type in "regedit" without the quotation marks ("). Another dialog will appear asking for permission to run regedit, click Yes. Click on the "edit" menu, now click on "Find..." you can also use the keyboard shortcut ctrl + f to get to the menu. Now type in "Display1_DownScalingSupported" without the quotation marks. Make sure only the boxes "Keys" "Values" "Data" is check marked. Click "Find Next." Once it finds the registry key it will automatically have the key highlighted. Right-click the highlighted key and click "Modify." In the "Value Data" box, enter 1. Make sure the Base is selected as "Hexadecimal". Click OK. Close out all your programs and restart your computer. Then go to the page to adjust the screen resolution.
