ahhh..SuSE...try searching ANYWHERE for SuSe 3D graphics and the answers will come to you. Basically Suse, fine though it is for many things is not so very good at getting graphics right. May I suggest using a Knoppix live CD to see how things should be?

You can optimize the resolution modes and refresh rates by looking at the manual (if you have it) or lookup for your monitor model on the net. You can also start windows and look for what modes and refresh rates it is using...apply that to SuSE and it will most likely work.

Tux,
