Hi Shadowmeph,

I just had a problem where only failsafe worked. It turned out to be a problem with the nvidia drivers, which was fixed by removing them and installing the latest ones.

You can setup the nvidia repository via YaST>Software>Software Repositories

I would try un-installing all the currently installed drivers, then install the latest nvidia driver.

hi thanks for reply
all it ended up being is this HorizSync 30.0 - 85.0
VertRefresh 43.0 - 75.0 in my xorg.conf it works now.
