Problems with some full screen games, no video :(

Hi all

When I run some games I get sound and stuff, and I'm sure the games are working cause I can shoot and stuff, but theres no video! My LCD says
Out of range
H: 27
V: 55
And goes black until I exit the game or restart the x server. Quake 3 and Tux Racer both do this. Unreal Tournament works fine however. The ndivia drivers are installed correctly and direct rendering works and all that.

Here are some of my specs:

17 inch Kogi LCD (60 KHZ at 1280 x 1024 max i think)
GeForce 5200 256MB
SuSE 9.0 freashly updated with all patches

Dont know if the rest of my system specs are necessaey so I'll leave them out for now.

Look at /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and check that the refresh rates for your monitor are correct.
