Just a shot in the dark, but I've had these sort of problems before
when the monitor is reporting scan ranges (DCC) that wont allow the
video card to display the higher resolutions. The way around it is
to tell the X server to ignore DCC and manually tweak the scan
ranges. No idea if this happens if you use DVI inputs but it
certainly happens with 15-pin DSUB (VGA). Another option could be a
manual mode line (there's plenty of caluculators online for these).
Have a look through the /var/log/Xorg.0.log (IIRC) file which will
tell you exactly what happened during startup and why the higher
resolutions were skipped.
