Default Suse 10.1 - AMD 64 - Black screen problem

After updating to the latest kernel provided for Suse 10.1 and reinstalling NVIDIA drivers (tried all versions I could get my hands on) I get a black screen a few seconds or minutes into using XWindows.

The system freezes completely and I have to do a hardware reboot. I saw a lot of similar problems in this forum, but nothing that suggests there is a solution.

My system is an AMD 64 3000+ on a Gigabyte motherboard with SLI support and PCI-e slots. I use one GeForce 6600 pci-e.

Is there a known solution for this problem or do I have to wait for a new kernel or nvidia driver?

I have already checked all these and also all other blank screen reports. Nothing applies in my case. Could it be a DVI output problem? That is the only thing I have read in here but there is no reported way to fix it.

Providing a bug report applies in every case. Please do so, per the sticky post.
