Display Screen Error on Laptop Bootup
 
Screen size is set to 800x600 which should be changed to 1024x768 this was caused by using the live cd MCNLive and for some reason this was changed.The strange thing is that Windows Xp isn't affected when logged in.

It goes like this during bootup

Dell Screen-800x600
Grub Boot-800x600
Grub Main Screen-800x600
Suse Loadup-800x600
Suse Main-800x600
Windows Xp Load Up(progress bar)-800x600
Windows Xp Log In
Windows Xp main theme-1024x768

Could it be one of these be the problems

A Setting in yast to change
A Setting in grub to change

You did get a higher resolution before? Sometimes the Dell BIOS doesn't provide enought video RAM, so only lower resolutions can run. If the video RAM is at least 8MB, try to modify /boot/grub/menu.lst. The vga= parameter sets the resolution:
Code:

    | 640x480  800x600  1024x768 1280x1024
----+-------------------------------------
256 |  0x301    0x303    0x305    0x307 
32k |  0x310    0x313    0x316    0x319 
64k |  0x311    0x314    0x317    0x31A 
16M |  0x312    0x315    0x318    0x31B
