    Not sure if this is going to help but I have a widescreen HP laptop and have Suse installed. You might try a resolution of 1440x900. It's worked perfectly for me.

    When do you get a blank screen? Is it after all the start-up diagnostics? If that's the case, then see if Ctrl-Alt-F1 will bring you back to a console. If that works, then do 'less /var/log/X11/Xorg.log' and check for the "(EE)" entries and see if anything went wrong when X tried to start.
