    I have exactly the same problem and have tried the same things and got the same results but my hardware is as follow:

    Dell Vostro 3350 with i5-2410M 2.3GHz Sandy Bridge

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Default Re: Resolution wrong.......

    I too was having issues with my display resolution. i5-2410M / Intel HD3000
    Booting off a CD, defaulted to 1366x768.
    After installation and booting off my hard drive, I would only get 1024x768 max.

    Multiple days into this issue, I finally removed nomodeset from my boot entry. Now all I get is 1366x768.
    I added it back, and once again it would max out at 1024x768

    One noticeable difference (other than the resolution) is that without the entry, lshw -C video shows driver=i915. With the entry, there is no driver listed.

    Hopefully this helps.
