I think you need to hack your xorg.conf.

Few time ago, I had a similar problem in which the resolution was
maxed to a value inferior to its normal value. My problem was that failed to detect the monitor. This could be discovered with the
files that Jason asked you.

If that is the case, you can specify your monitor settings in the file
xorg.conf. Consult your monitor manual or google the model to know the
horizontal and vertical refresh rates. For example:

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier  "Configured Monitor"
        Horizsync 30.0-60.0
        Vertrefresh 30.0-60.0

WARNING: if your monitor is really old, a wrong setup can break it.

Either the case, you can also specify your desired screen resolution
in the Display subsection, see a piece of my xorg.conf:

Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Default Screen"
    Monitor      "Configured Monitor"
    Device       "Configured Video Device"
    SubSection  "Display"
        Depth   24
        Modes   "1024x768_60.00"
                Virtual 1024 768

Hope that helps. If you don't understand, please ask me to go more
slowly, I have assumed you have certain level of knowledge about the
