In the Section "Monitor" of  your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, 

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device     "Card0"
Monitor    "Monitor0"
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     1
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     4
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     8
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     15
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     16
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     24
EndSubSection
EndSection


Change it to add a section 
Modes "1920x1080" 
like the following:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device     "Card0"
Monitor    "Monitor0"
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     1
Modes "1920x1080" 
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     4
Modes "1920x1080" 
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     8
Modes "1920x1080" 
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     15
Modes "1920x1080" 
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     16
Modes "1920x1080" 
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     24
Modes "1920x1080" 
EndSubSection
EndSection


Please try that out and report back with success or failure.  Then if it works, you may add more values like
Modes "1929x1080" "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600", etc
