Default Laptop won't keep resolution for GW

I purchased a new Dell Alienware laptop last month and, for some reason, it won't keep my resolution in GW.

My desktop resolution is 1366x768 and when I enter Guild Wars, it changes the resolution to 1024x768. I can then change the resolution in GW to 1366x768 and it is fine.

However, if I exit Guild Wars and then come back in, the resolution goes back to 1024x768. Its not a huge deal but how can I keep the resolution at 1366x768 when I launch GW?

Off-hand I'd say that the laptop is not properly reporting the hardware resolution to GW. I've seen that happen with desktops if Windows is running on only it's default drivers. Did you install the graphics driver for your laptop? If you did, I would suggest going to the Dell support site and seeing if there's an updated driver.
