I guess xrandr talks directly with the X server, my output on a T43p is

Which version of the t43p do you have (the one with the finger print
scanner or without)?

What is the output of
grep Modes /etc/X11/xorg.conf
If there is just a single resolution per mode, you cannot change at all.
 I've quite a few problems with the T43p without the scanner coming
with an Atheros based WLAN. I recently swapped to another T43p with the
scanner and an Intel W/Pro based WLAN which runs much better with Edgy,
e.g. suspend2ram finally works.
