What do you mean by nothing? The machine doesn't even boot, or it boots up and you don't see any image? Do you see the POST screens at least when the machine powers on?

Also, for future reference, you should make your topic titles more descriptive so people know what you are asking about.

Do you get any kind of error message? A GRUB error perhaps?

no error at all. the screen is just blank, hence my i get nothing. i have tested to card on two other machines with a bench mark. it passes them all. i'm guessing that suse shouls pic the card up & use some generic driver just to get a basic output to the screen right.
