Looks like you are right.
To change the resolution from within X use the following Option (excerpt):

"The syntax to override a BIOS resolution is below. You place the option
in the driver section.

Option "ForceBIOS" "1024x768=1400x1050"

This will re-program the old 1024x768 to become a new 1400x1050 one."
