Relevant sections of the XF86Config file:

Section "Monitor" 
 HorizSync 31.5-90
  Identifier "Monitor[0]" 
  ModelName "1280X1024@75HZ" 
  VendorName "--> LCD" 
  VertRefresh 55-80 
  UseModes "Modes[0]" 

Section "Modes" 
  Identifier "Modes[0]" 
  Modeline (See ** Note)

** Note: I am still working with the above numbers to see if I can
make it work better so this is an "in flux" set of numbers and I 
know that they are incorrect currently. Dell has unfortunately not 
distributed any info about this laptop's monitor so I'm having to 
experiment with both the Modes and the hsync 
values to find ones that work with the monitor. The default ones 
were the ones I was using, however I got info that this problem 
I've been having might be the result of incorrect monitor 
resolution so I am changing them. The above set was from an 
earlier model of this same laptop but I now know its wrong...:(

Section "Screen" 
  DefaultDepth 16 
  SubSection "Display" 
    Depth 16 
    Modes "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1024x768" 
  SubSection "Display" 
    Depth 32 
    Modes "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1024x768" 
  Device "Device[0]" 
  Identifier "Screen[0]" 
  Monitor "Monitor[0]" 

Section "Device" 
  BoardName "Quadro 4 500 GoGL" 
  BusID "1:0:0" 
  Driver "nvidia" 
  Identifier "Device[0]" 
  Screen 0 
  VendorName "NVidia" 
(there are additional commented out lines present)

Log file will be in my next post as soon as the SuSe system boots up. I don't have a copy of that data on this desktop.

note: I am currently playing with HorzSync to find one that works properly...seems like that might be the problem, but not sure.
