In the end i reinstalled opensuse and that fixed it. I think im going to change the GRUB default load to windows and I have found out how to do that on the forums.
My new problem is to do with ndiswrapper and a zoom wireless USB 4100 card, to get my network working.
So far I followed the ndis workthrough found here
I managed to unzip it and am upto the make part.
I get an error message saying "cannot find kernel build files"
I had a browse around the lib folder kernel section but wasnt too sure which files it wants in particular. I have only just installed the x64 version of opensuse could someone please let me know where the default kernel build files are located.
