the highest resolution available on any particular PC depends on how much video-memory the graphics card has. The color-depth available is also governed by the video memory -- so both res and color depth work hand in hand, sharing the memory between them.

Try reducing the color-depth setting then see if this allows the resolution to be increased. If it doesn't you will have to fit a more powerful graphics card (ie one that has more memory than your current one, such as 256MB at least for the very high res that you require).
