I think there is a problem with detecting your graphics card.
I assume that suse is getting installed properly means it is using
framebuffer device
for graphics. Try following in suse,

When bootloader starts give following option to kernel command line,
(if there is already a vga option with different value then replace it
with following)

Also try to boot in runlevel 2 / 3 not 5.

Login as root and execute following command,


if above command doesn't work then try "yast x11"

and check whether yast detects your graphics card correctly ?

Hope this helps....
