Re: [opensuse] Open SuSE 13.1 on Dell 4400
The overlap between the hardware you have and Dell hardware I use with 13.1, plus the modem and wireless you've added, suggests a possibility that too little RAM could possibly be your problem. Exactly when during 13.1 did the failure occur, and how did it manifest?

If you haven't already, I suggest if you can't add more RAM you try enabling swap prior to letting installation proceed past the first GUI step. Switch to vtty2 and run swapon if a swap partition already exists. If it doesn't, try partitioning that includes creating a prepared swap partition in advance of commencing another 13.1 installation attempt. Also you could try disabling unneeded resources in the motherboard BIOS (LPT port, serial ports, etc.). If you haven't tried running memtest lately, run it through several passes.
