Have you tried manually reconfiguring your xorg.conf? You may need a
"Mode" line, for example from mine (for my EeePC):
Figure out the exact resolution you need, and make a modeline for it
(there is a formula available to use pixWidth/pixHeight/DPI to generate
a modeline), and put it in your xorg.conf as specified above. You may
have to create the "DRI" section.
