Screen resolution problem

I'm using Zorin 9 Lite on an old Dell 4550 that previously ran Win XP Pro. The default resolution of 1920x1080 ran fine in XP but keeps poping in and out to 1024x768 and back in Zorin. I've been able to fix it using the commands below, but need a permanent solution.

jacatone@Dell4550:~$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA-0 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 477mm x 268mm
1920x1080 60.0 +
1680x1050 60.0
1280x1024 75.0 60.0
1440x900 59.9
1280x800 59.8
1280x720 60.0
1024x768 75.1 70.1 60.0*
800x600 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
640x480 75.0 72.8 60.0
720x400 70.1
DVI-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
S-video disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

jacatone@Dell4550:~$ xrandr -s 1920x1080

This looks like a start to change the resolution.
