Unhappy Can not change video card settings with YAST OR SAX2


I using SUSE 9.2 PRO, in the last installation step which is device configuration the computer screen went black and did not do nothing for 5 minutes. I pushed reset button and the computer rebooted onto the log in screen as normal. When I tried to verified the video card settings with YAST OR SAX2 (in kde or console log as a root) utilities the computer froze again, and did the same as above to regain control I pushed reset. I know hardware in the PC is as follows:
