    Unhappy Maximum number of X display failures reached

    Hi everybody!
    I tried ubuntu for a few weeks, but I couldn't get the nvidia drivers to work, I tried everything.

    So, I got sick of that, and went to download OpenSuse, which seems to be even nicer (youtube )

    I downloaded the 11.1 liveCD (gnome) from here.
    I nicley got the welcome screen, and the option screen (liveCD, check errors etc.). I chose LiveCD and it started booting, I got the splash screen with the loading bar, and after it completely loaded, the screen turns black with a lot of messages and at the end:
    Code:
    GdmLocalDisplayFactory: Maximum number of X display failures reached: Check X server log for errors.
    Great, I hoped for better luck after Ubuntu...

    My sys. specs:

    Asus F3Sc 32bit
    Intel CentrinoDuo
    Nvidia GeForce 8400m G 128MB
    3Gigs of RAM
    Screen res. of 1280x800

    Hope you guys can help me out...

    By the way, Google didn't help me this time...
