Try xrandr, using --newmode you can add a 1920x1080 mode that will drive you
monitory. This can be tested at the command line, and then moved to a script
when you are happy with the results.
I have been told to be careful about the settings of the mode settings, some
values can damage your monitor, but I have not had a problem. xrandr --help
will tell you the meanings of the fields for newmode.
I have the same detection problem with a 1280x1024, I located a mode for it by
looking in /var/log/Xorg.0.log. I then created a script that runs at boot. The
script (/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/99-xrandr) is:
# Single monitor operation
xrandr --newmode 1280x1024 108.00 1280 1328 1440 1688 1024 1025 1028
1066 +hsync +vsync
xrandr --addmode VGA-0 1280x1024
xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode 1280x1024
