you can trying editing you /etc/X11/xorg.conf

look for
Section "Screen"
    Identifier "screen1"
    Device "device1"
    Monitor "monitor1"
    DefaultColorDepth 16

find the matching defaultdepth subsection and add the required mode
(please note mode should be supported)
Subsection "Display"
        Depth 16
        Modes "1280x800" "1024x786"
    EndSubsection

you file should look something similar to above.
