Monitors don't require drivers, Graphics Cards do require drivers.

Am I correct in reading that you are:

1) Running some other OS on your laptop, that is not Fedora 11 (e.g. Windows)
2) Running Fedora 11 in a VirtualBox virtual machine on top of that other OS.

If so, then you don't need a Linux driver for your real monitor or
indeed graphics card, what you need is a Linux driver for the virtual
graphics card that VirtualBox emulates for the VM.

If it's anything like other Virtualisation software, then what it
emulates is a fairly low-spec graphics card which is not capable of
much more than 1024x768 - so you may be stuck with what you have.
