Dell Inspiron 1100 graphics issues

I just installed opensuse 11 on my old Inspiron 110. The install seemed to go fine, but on first boot the desktop did not fill the screen. The desktop only filled the upper left of the screen, about 75% of it, but it seemed to overlap the top of the desktop at the bottom of the screen.

I went into setting to see if the resolution setting was the culprit. I changed the resolution to native (1024*768) and, after clicking OK, a screen appeared and I chose to test the settings. After that the screen went blank and never came back. I rebooted the laptop and now it reboots back into that blank screen.

Any help with the problem would be greatly appreciated.

OK, a repair install brought me back to where I was before (see the picture above). Now, I am open to any suggestions to correcting this that anyone may have. Thanks

Well, hopefully I have at least a couple head scratchers. Here is my xorg.conf, just in case it can be helpful:
