Question SuSE 9.1 hangs when "Resuming session"

I have just installed SusE pro 9.1 and I am having some problems with it. First of all, when linux boots it hangs when it is "Resuming session". Also the screen looks weird but I figured out that I have to install the latest nVidia Drivers. This happens from the moment I installed SuSE. Then on failsafe mode if I try to startx all I get is a fuzzy screen and then again linux hangs..

I have an AMD Athlon XP +2000
a VIA Kinetiz 7E motherboard,
nvidia geforce 4 mx440 graphics card
2 cd drives (one of which is cd-r)
And i also have some usb devices connected.

I'd gladly appreciate any help. Thanks

Alright, So i've reinstalled now and installed the nvidia drivers from failsafe mode, but however now the screen goes fuzzy and suse hangs after some minutes that i've run the X window system(or whatever it is called).

Any help would be greatly appreciated
