If that is the maximum resolution being shown then it is likely that is the maximum resolution the video card in your laptop supports, check your manufacturer's website and/or video card manufacturer's website to check what the max resolution for your laptop/video card is.
Also ensure you have the right graphics driver loaded for the video card to ensure that he max resolution possible is available from within windows 8.
