x-windows problem in sony with os: suse10.0
i have just installed suse 10.0 to a sony laptop (vgn-bx196xp). during installation there was no problem (recognized video card, ethernet card and wireless card) except that the monitor of my machine was not in the list so i chose a generic lcd with my laptop's resolution. and installation ended successfully, but just after that x-windows did not work(just a black screen, i can hear sounds but there is nothing to see).
i have tried to solve the problem using console.
i have tried startx. it gave errors first saying that the server is already active for display 0.
then it says:
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key giving up.
xinit: unable to connect to X server
xinit: no such process (errno 3): Server error.
then i tried to run mcc to configure hardware but it says
mcc: command not found
i really donot know what to do, can somebody please help me...
if it helps my graphics card is: ati mobility radeon x700 (which it recognizes) monitor is sony wgxa with resolution 1280 x 800.
also it may have nothing to do with it but my dvdrom is external
