Try taking out this modeline, which may not be correct for your monitor.

This should make it select an appropriate modeline that matches the
layout.

check the output in /var/log/Xorg.log.0 and see what it is actually
selecting.  
Do you know the refresh rate of the screen?  you might need to set that
explicitly. I had to that on my desktop system since the syncmaster LCD
panel screen could only do 1600X1200 at a vert refresh of 60hz.  The
EDID values would not give it the 60Hz refresh so it had to be
overridden with my settings.
