Unhappy Problem with X-Windows in my Sony VAIO FS742

Hi All,

I just bought Suse Linux 9.3 Proffesional. I tried to install on my Sony VAIO laptop FS742. I did a complete installation and it went on fine. When I tried to bootup using dual bootup, it boots up and i am not getting the X-Windows (means I am not able to see anything). the screen is blank. How can I get through this.
Any help is appreciated.
