    1. You say that openSUSE did startup and load properly. Was that a KDE or GNOME desktop using 32 or 64 bit?

    2. What did you do just before it stopped working? Software Update or what?

    3. Does the Grub Boot loader startup and allow you to select anything?

    4. Executing the terminal command cat /proc/cmdline shows the command line used to load and start your selected kernel. Did you run this at the terminal prompt?

    5. When openSUSE does not load now, what do you get? Blank screen, terminal prompt or what?

    6. When you speak of the Control Panel, to what do you refer to? Windows has a "Control Panel", but openSUSE does not have anything with that exact naming.

    Thank You,

    As I understand the OP, he does not mean "the boot splash", but something in his desktop. Else I can not understand the rest of his post.

    Please dilbertone, explain more exactly what happens when you boot. Step by step and stop where you do not see that "bootsplash" you mention.
