    That happens when the monitor can't support the frequency/resolution the video card is sending.
    If the problem occurs just after the boot screen you may try the boot option vga=0xNNN where NNN is a res/color mode compatible with your display (in my system I use vga=0x31a, 0x317 is also common).

    If the problem happens after the display driver is loaded you have to set a compatible freq/resolution/color mode in /etc/xorg.conf.
    This can be accomplished the easy way with yast's sax2 config utility, with your card config utility (like nvidia-settings or ati control center) or the linux way, by hand in a text editor.

    Check out the how-to's at opensuse's site.
