horrible flickering TFT


I'm using SuSE Linux 8.0 and every time I change from console to the X-Server (Ctrl-Alt-F7) my TFT monitor (VisionMagic T17A) autoconfigs. That's very annoying. Normally my TFT autoconfigs only one time if it recognizes that it runs with an unkown screen configuration.

Any idea?

Thank you!!!

where did you find your drivers?
I'm using a ABit Siluro video card with the NVidia G-Force2 MX 400 chip.

Thank's for help.
