Cannot Display This Video Mode

Thats the error I get when i boot up my newly installed opensuse, what do i do?

Try failsafe boot first. You may be ok with that and be able configure your video etc from there.

After booting in to failsafe and logging in enter su and then the password. Then you can run sax2 to change your video settings.


It means that a wrong videomode for booting is selected. At the boot options you see something like vga=0x31a remove that, boot and you’ll see the console messages. This behaviour usually comes from installing with a wrong resolution. You could also try vga=normal or vga=0x317 (which is 1024x768)
To change this permanently edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and look for vga=
Edit those lines, save and you should be OK.
