Are you using the nvidia drivers from nvidia.com? If so, you have to recompile the nvidia drivers each time you upgrade your kernel.

I would rerun either the nvidia installation program or the "tiny-nvidia-installer" program on SuSE using the "--update" option to download a newer version if it exists and start the compilation process. You need to log out of your windows manager first (kde, gnome, or whatever), su to root and "init -3" to stop the server first. After that, accept the license and selecting yes is all you need to do to install a new nvidia kernel module. There are options to specify a kernel version and compile the module, but using --update is the easiest way to do it.
