If that is the highest resolution allowed by the card in that environment, then you cannot increase it.

There is probably not a good server driver for that graphics card.

Did you try updating and/or reinstalling the driver?
PowerEdgeTechIT ConsultantCommented:
Those resolutions are not supported with the onboard graphics card. Remembering that this is a server, if you MUST use that resolution, then you'll need to try a card, but again, as a server, they are not supported, so it will be hit/miss to find one that works.

Thank you so much for your time..

Yes i did reinstalling drivers but no use.
I have to check the capacity of the card.
Why do you need that resolution on the server itself? You normally don't work directly on servers, and in those short and few occasions when you do, low end displays with resolutions of 1024x768 or 1280x1024 are more than good enough.

Servers are maintained remotely, via Remote Desktop connections, and then you can use resolutions the server's hardware doesn't support. Besides, no one would want to work longer than a few minutes in a freezing, noisy server room.
