Question Unable to set resolution beyond 640x480 9800GTX+ VX2235wm OpenSuSE 11.2

I just did a fresh install of OpenSuSE 11.2 due to a failed hard drive. I ran the one-click and installed 195.36.15, but couldn't get a kernel to build. So I downloaded the latest driver 195.36.24 and ran the install by hand...

After running nvidia-xconfig and hours of research and tweaking, I'm unable to get a resolution to set beyond 640x480. A detailed X startup log reveals that the driver thinks that the panel's native resolution is 640x480. An earlier version of the driver under 11.2 before my drive crash did not have this problem; I had happily used it at native 1680x1050 resolution for 3 years.

Any thoughts on something I might be doing wrong ? A bug? Setting issue?

Thank you in advance,
