Loginscreen resolution problem


I have just installed Suse 9.2 on an old laptop. When tying to login, I only see PART OF a big loginscreen - the username and password inputboxes are not visible. Can anyone please tell me how to fix this, as I dont want to use another whole night reinstalling the os. Confused newbie

Did you properly configure your monitor and video card during the last step of the install?

Have a look at this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ighlight=vga3D
and at some other threads in this search: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...by=&sortorder=
The idea would be using a "vga=" parameter in your bootloader's config file so you adjust the console video mode. For start you can append at the end of the "kernel" line the "vga=ask" option and at the next boot you will be able to select the mode from some predefined ones. If you find one that works, remember its hex descriptor and replace "ask" with it.
