Driver's Problem

Hi guys
I bought a laptop from ASUS
and it has a ATI Radeon HD 4200
I want to install openSUSE on it but when I try to install Display become ruler ruler like this
and I can’t install it
so I want to know how can I install the driver before installing openSUSE?
please explain complete because it’s my first time that I want install linux

you seem to be trying to install Ubuntu…

this is not a Ubuntu forum…
the experts for installing that system should be very happy to help
you over at

well, you might find someone here who could GUESS how to do what you
need, but it would still be best to get it straight from over there.

That was not my laptop
I said this is like mine
of course after opensuse I tried to install ubuntu and kubuntu and chakra but all of them had the same problem
and now I want to install opensuse if you help me

what version of openSUSE are you trying to install?

do you have the Live CD? and have you done this:

and get no, zero, none errors?

if you did, and there were no errors, then boot from the CD do not
select install from the first green screen…instead boot up to live

do you see the same (or any) kind of video problem?

if so do not try to install before reading: openSUSE Graphic Card
Practical Theory Guide for Users

follow the info given there and ask questions here if you get stuck…

Why this tired process. You could install only opensuse and through yast or terminal you will install your drivers.
I can not understand your problem. it’s confusing.

Hey Mohammad2mt, welcome here.

Please follow mentioned link to get the graphics card working properly. That’s where the trouble originates.

@stamostolias: it’s a good practice to boot from a LiveCD. If that works, we know this is not some hardware issue, just driver related. Some users don’t get an interface at all after install, finding out which version etc is being used etc. is needed to give proper support. Saying “just install openSUSE and use Yast” will not help the OP.
