If you want 1366x768 resolution write native drivers.
Or drop back to Real Mode and use the VBE Interface (not sure if possible)
And the maximum you can achieve with no hacked VGA is 640x480.
For high resolution VGA there is a Cosmos class, I don't remember
but I think Cosmos Developers should about this, Wait till they reply.
I don't know if this is possible through Cosmos but there is a 90x60 Text Mode which is
720x480.
Also, if you test this on real hardware its gonna cover up the whole screen, its VMWare that is making
it look like that.

If you type in cosmos c# high res there is a video where some dude shows of an os which has a 640x480 resolution and can be set higher, The Video is called "PearOs3 - High resolution VGA!" I think he said something about uploading the kernel but you can check it out.
