Thanks Hans, but I don't belive that's a matter of driver or kernel
upgrade, because I make the both upgrades, my SuSE version it's 9.0, and
I use the SuSe Kernel 2.6.4-34. Optimized for my hardware, and the
problems persist, I know that's ridiculous, but I trying some
configurations in the SaX2, and XF86config, and nothing.
I have a Toshiba Satellite notebook with the same video card, and it's
works perfect, I don't know with the screen mode like 15.4 Wide UXGA or
XGA make diference, but my Dell has a UXGA and the Toshiba has a XGA
If the resolution 1024*768 works lika a active matrix, fit on screen,
its good enough, but doesn't work.

The nVidia GeForce 4 4200 Go-Grafik-Engine needs driver from
nvidia to work properly - please see

The driver shipped with SuSE are not as good as possible - but
this is a license problem - my Latitude C840 is running under SuSE 8.1
and two nvidia rpms: NVIDIA_GLX-...rpm and NVIDIA_kernel-...rpm.
