This is the first time I've seen Suse fail when lowering the resolution - it usually happens when raising it. Did you use a graphical application of did you edit a file? If you did the latter, it's more than likely you modified you xorg.conf in an unacceptable way so that the system can't read it anymore.

Anyway, the file you are looking for is most likely: /etc/X11/xorg.conf. You can edit it from the command line by doing:
nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

or maybe a simple
will get you just as far.
