Suse 10.0 display problems

Just installed suse10.0 and was just looking around and getting to know it alittle better.
While i was checking for a way to install proper video drivers and such i stumbled upon a video/resolution setting and felt i should correct the settings since the screen selected on the options, was not the screen i was using. So i set the screen settings to Philips since that was the screen i was using and when i tested it out, the screen could not display properly (as in that it wasnt diplaying anything at all). The screen came back on and linux gave me 2 options, to use this setting now or wait until reboot, i did not get the option to return to the previos setting.

SO, my problem now is that when i start linux, nothing displays on the screen.
Typicaly me to stumble into something like this about 30mins after installing linux. i dont got much experience with linux and what ive said now is just from memory, since i cant get in to linux, i cant check and tell you where i went to get to these settings.

So what im hoping is that someone here knows suse pretty good and know what im talkin about. Hoping it would be so easy that i could just get a command to set screen resolution and hz to Default or the resolution i had when i first had installed linux and had not changed a thing. The videocard is new so it is supposed to be able to display the setting.
Seeing this as an opportunity to get a better idea of how linux works, if i dont figure it out, all i really have to do is format the linux partition and install it again :P heh...

If u have access to text mode, Just try to run yast it will detect your video card and monitor. After it try to start with a lowar resolution.
