Given that's a new monitor, the first thing I would suspect is a hardware failure. Often a cable has gone bad, but new electronic gear may suffer from "infant mortality". Try some other source with that monitor and perhaps another monitor with the computer. Always suspect cable problems.

I tried another cable, and I tried putting the monitor on my Blu-Ray player. The other cable did the same thing; the Blu-Ray gave me a perfect 1920X1080 image. I also bought another video card after those checks seemed to clear both the monitor and the cables.

I don't know why the monitor would misbehave on HDMI and not on VGA. What I do know is that it works perfectly on xp through the VGA connector, and misbehaves with suse. Hence the question here.
