black screen after suspension

hi everybody!!!

I installed opensuse 11.1 gnome in my laptop acer aspire 5920G just 10 days ago (I’m a newb and I ask your help).

When I try to wake up my laptop after a ram suspension the screen remains black. (the same thing happened when my OS was ubuntu, but with window$ xp everything works well)

I’ve already read some topic but I don’t know where to start. Does anybody could help me?

it works well with Redmond software because hardware makers work
closely with M$ as they design the hardware and make their machine
work smoothly with M$…and, usually put a big STICKER on the machine
to proudly show the machine is DESIGNED FOR M$…

did you see a sticker like that stuck to your machine with Ubuntu or
openSUSE name on it? how about the box it came in, did it mention
Built for Linux? if not you might expect problems…

check our hardware compatibility list to
see if _any_one has been able to figure out how to get your machine to
wake up with openSUSE as nicely as it does with the Dark Side…

the BEST way to get hardware that will work with Linux is to buy
machines with linux installed at the factory…those are available
from Dell, Lenovo, Asus, HP and others…

This is probably related to the graphics driver not being unloaded properly, then not reloaded properly. Can you tell us what the videocard in the laptop is, did you install a driver for it?

My videocard is NVidia GeForce 8600m GT.
no, i didn’t install any driver for it, any other thing related to video, graphics ecc… works well without problems or difficulties.
