I installed openSuse 11.4 x64 on my parents' Dell Dimension E521. It
has a problem in that the monitor blanks out to black about every 45
seconds or so for about 1-2 seconds. The cpu is an AMD Athlon 64 x2
Dual Core Processor 3800+. The video is provided by a ATI Radeon
X1300/1550 RV516. I have installed the legacy driver for ATI but that
didn't help.
spec sheet from Dell says you have:
Nvidia integrated video (DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 Graphics
Processing Unit) or optional PCI Express x16 graphics card

Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?
does it really have an ATI card? If so maybe ask Dell why and
request/demand NVidia replacement :^)

Mark, post the output of /sbin/lspci back to this thread.
