What I've done for my desktop PC is to run gtf to get a proper modeline,
then insert that modeline into xorg.conf. FWIW:
~$ gtf 1366 768 60

# 1368x768 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 47.70 kHz; pclk: 85.86 MHz
Modeline "1368x768_60.00" 85.86 1368 1440 1584 1800 768 769 772 795 -HSync +Vsync

Just a remark, the modeline is of course monitor dependent. You should not
just copy-paste the above values in your xorg.conf, but rather run the above
command on your machine and copy-paste the numbers it provides in your
particular case, for your particular monitor.

HTH, :-)

In case it isn't clear, putting in a bad modeline can damage your video card
and/or monitor.

How about posting the output of xrandr? That will tell us what modes are
autodetected and configured.

Why is the default depth 16? How about changing this to 24 or 32?

And here also...

Yes, it would be useful. When troubleshooting X issues, it is always a good
idea to post the output of xrandr and the contents of xorg.conf and
Xorg.0.log, preferably simultaneously because the information in them is
typically correlated.

Try to change the default depth above (on both lines) and post all three
things in full so we can examine them.

HTH, :-)
