Suse Linux problem: monitor display crashes
Platform: Suse Linux 8.2 and 9.0
Hardwares: eMachines T1090 with integrated Intel® Direct AGP graphics card and Sony CPDG220R monitor
Problem Symptoms: After booting to KDE, everything will work normally for a while. And then at a random time the display crashes. With the 8.2 before, most of the screen went blank except that there was a vertical green line at the very left edge. With the newly installed 9.0 version, there are many vertical lines of differental colors across the whole screen. Once this happens, I have to force it to shut down and reboot every time. Very frustrated!
I have a dual system, with Windows XP I have not got any problem whatsoever. So I think there must be something wrong with drivers or settings in Suse Linux. Tried to get rid of this problem by updating from 8.2 to 9.0. But it doesn't help much.
Solution: Please help!
