Me neither, but nice to hear that it works

I did type in /boot/grub/menu.lst at root/. It still gave me denial.
Stange! Do you use grub or lilo? (Sorry for that stupid question)

BTW what does 'apm=off' do?
APM is the precursor of ACPI. Has to do with powermanagment. Don't know why this interferes with graphics...

To the last question: Yes, sax2 is the way of choice. Sax is also part of the Yast modules to change graphic related settings. You may also check the settings directly in /etc/X11/XF86config.

I used grub.



I just noticed your reply was on the nest page.

Yes it is strange! I tried Mandrake 10 last night and had a similar problem. I thought I would try Suse instead. I got it figured out quicker (with help from you guys). Thanks for your help!
