Flashing Sony TFT LCD Color Computer Display Monitor

I just downloaded Open SuSE Linux 11.4 and installing it on a Vaio 2.8ghz Computer. While loading everything went well, but when I loged backon my Monitor Flashes about every 20 seconds, just for about 3 seconds. I am using a GForce 2200 Video card.

What I need to know is their anyone who can tell me why this is happeining and how to fix it. I have used Open SuSE 10.3 on another machine and have never had this problem.

Hope some one can help me.

I'm not very experienced with the topic, but you can always check logs. Also, you can reinstall X server, and this kind of problem could be also caused by using wrong/buggy driver.
