Re: [opensuse] Advice needed re getting setting right for new monitor
This initially smelled to me like it could well be a Plymouth failure, and thought to try disabling it. I never let it install in the first place.

But, no Grub menu? Are your vttys blank too once something does appear on screen? Have you tried disconnecting the HDMI cable? Is 2560x1440 not supposed to be possible via use of only one cable? Cards with multiple outputs have a preferred aka #1 port. It sounds like your HDMI cable is on the #1 port, and #2 does not light up until X gets into the act to notice that two outputs exist.

I wonder if you were using Grub Legacy if you would have the same problem. I see a lot of complaints about video on the Grub Help mailing list without counterparts in re Grub Legacy.

NVidia makes me crazy. I only have 3 such cards of widely varying ages, and don't use those systems much. Intel (except for the older stuff like 845G and before) and ATI for me have been a whole lot less grief.
