I have a 5 year-old Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop, with a display resolution of 1280x800 (16:10). I wish to increase that resolution to at least 1440x900. Is this possible? If so - how?

enter image description here

Chipset: Intel GM965 Express Chipset. Graphics Processor: integrated Intel GMA X3100 graphics (Previously changed to 965 Express). LCD Display: 15.4" widescreen with a 1280 × 800 resolution, 15.4" widescreen with a 1280 × 800 resolution and TrueLife, or a 15.4" widescreen with a 1440 x 900 high resolution and TrueLife.

It looks like your display's max resolution is 1280x800.

"15.4" widescreen with a 1440 x 900 high resolution and TrueLife," said on Wikipedia, is physically another display for your laptop.

Maybe you could replace your display in service center.
