Question Newbie with SuSE 9 & Dell Laptop 4150


Hey whats up. Im trying to get SusE 9 running at 1024x768 on a Dell Inspiron 4150 but it will not work correctly. When this resolution is chosen the screen has about an inch of black in the center and acts funny.

Anyone have any ideas? Or is there something I missed here?

Working at 800x600 just fine, but would like to configure it to use the above. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
