I had the same issue when I first installed Vector Linux 7.0.  The tool vasm was able to fix this.  vasm can be found under Menu/System/vasm (it can be found in the System section of the Menu).  After I used this tool to adjust it, I think I had to reboot, and then when I checked Menu/Settings/Display, I was able to change the resolution to 1084X768 (mine was stuck at 800X600).  I may have had to reboot here.  

I'm not sure exactly what option I chose under vasm, but it was not the default option (it was a reasonably evident choice though).  Sorry I can't be a little more specific.  It was a while ago that I installed VL7.0.  I'm sure vasm will allow you to increase your screen resolution though.

Sorry to hear that.  I'm surprised, because after I ran it, it gave me the option to change the resolution from 800x600 to 1024x768 or 1280x1024, which were options that were previously unavailable to me.

Perhaps if you select SUPER first, and then XWINDOW, and then XCONF, and then VXCONF, then I think it may work.

I have exhausted the options vasm offers. Changing the resolution in vasm has no actual effect on the resolution when x actually runs after my attempts at vasm confg, no matter what i choose i still get 1024x768@60hz. As i said previously, i have tried vasm.

Some experimentation with modelines did the trick. The last one yielded satisfactory results:
