I reinstall my suse10.1 but after the installation system reboot and start the OS i can hear the suse(starting sound) but the screen is totally black blank.

It usually can only detect the video card after the 1st time booting(failed to detect video card). How do i fix this permanently? I don want to reboot it everytime i use.... Please help me thanks.
