    Question Problem with X-Windows in my Sony VAIO FS742


    Hi All,

    I just bought Suse Linux 9.3 Proffesional. I tried to install on my Sony VAIO laptop FS742. I did a complete installation and it went on fine. When I tried to bootup using dual bootup, it boots up and i am not getting the X-Windows (means I am not able to see anything on my monitor) the screen is blank.
    How can I get through this.

    My Graphics card is Intel® Chipset 915GM/PM/GMS/910GML Chipset Controller Driver

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks.

    SUSE will have a failsafe option in its grub menu, boot using that. it will send you to the command line, here login as root and run this command:
    Code:
    sax2
    With sax2 you can re-setup your graphics system, try and select the correct values, and be sure to test the X-server before commiting the changes.

    Oh and welcome to the forums fellow countryman.
