Missing Display Option (High Color) and 1024 x 768??

I had to reinstall Windows 98 and Windows 2000 on two separate laptops. Both were successful, but the screens were small squares in the middle of the screen.
On the IBM ThinkPad 600 (Win 98), I went to the display section of the control panel and changed the color from 16-bit to high color and changed the resolution to 1024 x 768. The screen now is full size.
However on the Dell Latitude C600 (Win 2000), the only option that is available when I go to the display area is 16-bit and 640 x 480. Even when I slide the marker to the highest point (800 x 600) it goes back to 640 x 480. What can I do?
