Fatal Error, Cant Start X Using SuSE 9.1! Please Help!

Hi, i posted before that mmy video card was acting funny. It was up-to-date and all worked fine till couple of days later, my fps dropped to 20-
and games were all choppy and didnt work, then i checked my glxinfo and it said no card vendor and no direct rendering, I thought i did have direct rendering and i got a Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 card which has the latest drivers from YaST Online Update so all should be fine. I turned of the comp last night and went to sleep, next day, i turn comp on and go to Linux when dual booting, It says

Fatal Error

Screen Not found
Cant find (or load) Nvidia
cant find(or load) glx

And doesnt start. I go into a terminal like mode. I login and wrote down


No go, i still get same error. Please help me solve this!

Thanks In Advance,

try running 'sax' or 'sax2' (can't remember which command works). This should start the X11 configuration. This will get your X Windows up and running. You'll probably have to reinstall the latest Nvidia drivers again
