Help discovering what my problem lies
I had OpenSUSE 10.2 installed with a dual boot with XP. Everything worked fine but earlier this week I decided to reinstall to get rid of my XP partition and free up some hard drive space.
When I finished installing OpenSUSE I had no GUI. I tried startx but got the error:

However, something still isn't quite right. The screen is jumpy when I do things like scroll a web page. I have installed the latest drivers for my video card, a NVIDIA GeFORCE 7600 GT, just as I had on the previous installation.
Any ideas what the problem could be?

Okay, I just reinstalled again and when asked to configure my hardware on the final page of the instalation I clicked skip. OpenSUSE has now booted into the GUI but I was met with the message:
"Your monitor did not report its X and Y Size. This might cause display problems like unreadable fonts."
Fonts are still readable but not as smooth as they should be. Clicking yes to the message opens SaX2: X11 Configuration and if I edit any of the settings, for instance turning down the resolution, and test them the test will fail.
Anyone seen this at all?

Yesterday I decided to download Fedora to see if the same happened. After burning the disk I realised that since my original installation of OpenSUSE I had started to use a KVM switch so my monitor wasn't connected directly to my computer.
I removed the KVM switch and reinstalled OpenSUSE and everything is running fine now!
