The install worked fine, Suse 10.0 loaded everything it was suppose to.

I even got messages that everything was ok. But then I get the out of range message. So something is going on with the refresh rate of the monitor.

I will check with those links that you gave me.

Thanks for the help so far.

I have a machine that duel boots to Win Xp and Suse Linux 10.0
Windows XP pro. works fine with refresh rate of 60 mhz

Suse dosn't seem to like this refresh rate. I've tried other refresh rates

but keep getting out of range 71.3 Khz 88.0 Hz in Suse Linux.

I can appreciate your frustration and every operating system, Linux distribution has its own quirks and from time to time you get bitten by them. I have been using SUSE exclusively for many years and I wouldn't switch unless someone forced me. This kind of problem is not limited to just SUSE.

As suggested, the "out of range" message is coming from the monitor and not Linux. Its saying that the GUI is trying to use a video mode (i.e. a refresh rate that it does not support. Unfortunately, laptops in general are tricky to install.

Boot the system and when it gets to the boot prompt add "single" to the boot string. Whether you are using grub or lilo there will be an option to specify addition parameters. This brings you into single user mode.

Once there you can run xf86config to set the various parameters including the refresh rate. Make sure you know exactly what you monitor can support. I would first try a rate that is lower that you think your card can handle. Make sure you have your manual handy so you know your monitor horizontal synchronization rate (HSYNC), vertical refresh rate (VFSH), and video buffer memory.

I would suggest making a backup of /etc/X11/xorg.conf beforehand just to be safe.
