After the machine has booted and you're getting that message
from the monitor. try ctrl-alt-F2 or F1,F3,F4,F5... or
even ctrl-alt-backspace. The F2 command there should bring you
to a login prompt which you can login, run SaX2 to change the
properties of your video configuration. The problem sounds like
your SuSe config is not setup for your specific monitor.
Maybe the resolution is too high or the sync rates do not
