It looks like maybe the color depth is too high for it.  You can run 

startx &> startxlog 

and examine startxlog to see if modelines are getting tossed out for some
reason that relates to the monitor specs not being enough, but you might
find that you get the resolution if you put the Depth down to 16.  While you
are at it check that your Monitor horiz and vert are right.
