T400 discrete graphics only...resolution

I just restarted a t400 with switchable graphics (1400 X 900).But in discrete graphics mode it does not give me that resolution....What is the secret.?
is it like that even with ancient version of windows.?(i will go back only if w7 has a better display driver).
