The laptop is a Dell Latitude E6410. The BIOS shows an NVIDIA NVS 3100M. The Panel Type is shown in the BIOS as 14" Wide XGA+ with a Native Resolution of 1440 x 900. OS is Leap 15.0, 64 bit.
I installed openSUSE Leap 15.0 on this Laptop 10 days ago and am extremely happy with it, because it seems to be very stable and solid. I have an issue with the video, because it is set to 640x480 (VGA resolution) and things are huge. That makes it very easy on my eyes, but very hard for Navigation. My goal is to simply change the resolution, to 800x600 or 1024x768 and not risk upsetting the stability of the machine.
If someone can give me one or more commands, to use in a terminal, to change the Resolution, I will be very grateful. From searching and reading that I have done, I suspect it may require multiple steps and not be obvious for a Newbie.
Or, if someone can tell me which file(s) I need to Edit and what I need to change in the current settings, to go from 640x480 to 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768, I will be very grateful.
Note: If you need additional data, please tell me which command(s) I should use in a Terminal and I will run those commands and get the additional information you need, so you can help me.
Thank you, in advance, for your time and help, which I greatly appreciate!

Note: After running the 2nd command above, when I try to accept the nVidia license, it seems to be in a loop and not accepting a “y” or a “yes” response from me and I get this error message:
"Do you agree with the terms of the license? [yes/no] (no):
Aborting installation due to user disagreement with nvidia-glG03 package license.
