    Hi, welcome here.

    Which driver version did you install, how did you install it?
    And, which repos do you use, how did you install GNOME 3.4? Please output of

    Are you saying you don't have any other repos than the GNOME one? That's not OK. You should at least have OSS, Non-OSS, and Update. If you cut out a piece, please don't. To help you out we need complete and accurate information, otherwise we have no direction to search for solutions.

    The issue is probably in the NVIDIA driver, more issues have been reported. Also on other distros using this NVIDIA driver version. A solution could be to download and install the NVIDIA driver in a different version. The install procedure is often called "the hard way", but actually is not hard at all. Please post output of
    Code:
    uname -a
    and I'll post a short list of commands to install a different NVIDIA driver.

    295.40 is the problem (most likely). You should either downgrade or upgrade the driver (= install a newer version "the hard way").

    Here's a short instruction to install the latest NVIDIA driver pack, that works flawlessly on my laptop, server and a couple of other machines with NVIDIA's.

    Preparations:

    - Yast - Software - Software Management, pick Pattern view.
    Check the Linux Kernel Development pattern for install
    Perforim the install

    - Yast - System - /etc/sysconfigeditor
    Search for "KMS_IN_INITRD", Go to the item found, and set it's value to "yes".

    - Open a terminal window, copy and paste command below, and execute it, it will create a folder in your homedir and download the driver installer to it:
    Code:
    mkdir ~/NVIDIA
    cd ~/NVIDIA
    wget ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/302.11/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-302.11.run
    Installing the driver:

    - Reboot, in the bootmenu hit F5 and choose the "System V" option.
    Now add a space and a "3" right behind the "vga=..." statement
    The system will now boot in runlevel 3, providing you with a non-graphical login prompt
    - Login with username and password, and do
    Code:
    cd ~/NVIDIA
    su -c 'sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-302.11.run -q -a'
    su -c reboot
    After the "su -c" commands the system will ask you for the root password.

    Please let know if this worked for you.

    You forgot to mention that this is a beta driver, but then again, aren't
    they all? ;-)
