Question problem in opensuse 10.3


I installed opensuse on my pc.it installed without a problem.So happily i booted suse happily but after loading drivers, mounting etc(which os does on boot) i got a blank screen.the monitor light was blinking.
i thought there might be a problem with installation so Installed it again.
the problem is same.
i am not able to understand what has happened...

if the blinking starts where the login should be, then try pressing:

Code:
CTRL+ALT+F1
too go into the shell. Then try the following: xorg-config

then follow the steps, try setting your monitor manually.

In simple terms, the xorg.conf file can be considered as the configuration file for your video card and monitor. It contains the specific settings your system should use for the video display, and if all you are getting is a blank screen then most likely the problem is simply that the parameters in the current file are not compatible with your equipment. To illustrate, if your xorg.conf file specifies a resolution higher than your monitor is capable of rendering, or the monitor refresh rate values are inappropriate for your monitor, then obviously the monitor will not be able to work correctly.

If you indicate exactly which video card and monitor you are using (manufacturer and model number) and also post the contents of your current xorg.conf file, that would be helpful in determining what the problem might be
