Hello! I've got a problem with my graphic card after cleaning the computer from dust. At windows i forced up the resolution, so everything is fine, but 1920x1080 isn't my native resolution! I wan't to migrate to openSUSE but instalator is much bigger than my monitor can "see" resolution is like 800x600 or 1024x768 but I can't see the whole instalator. Can you help me? :S

Increase the screen resolution until you can see full screen...or uninstall the drivers, then reinstall..  I believe you can do uninstall the drivers from safe mode, since safe mode will only load the default Windows graphics drivers.

If I understand you correctly...

Your Windows installation is ok but you have a problem when attempting to install openSUSE?

 

I'm not familiar with openSUSE but I found following:

 

1.

To change to another screen resolution for installation, proceed as follows:

  1. Boot for installation.

  2. Press F3 to open a menu from which to select a lower resolution for installation purposes.

  3. Select Installation and proceed with the installation as described in Chapter 1, Installation with YaST.

Source.

 

This describes the process to get a lower resolution, getting a higher resolution should be similar...

 

2.

If this doesn't work you could try to install in text mode:

To perform an installation in text mode, proceed as follows:

  1. Boot for installation.

  2. Press F3 and select Text Mode.

  3. Select Installation and proceed with the installation as described in Chapter 1, Installation with YaST.

Source.

 

I hope this helps!  :wink:

I've tried that before and... it didn't help me. Changing the resolution doesn't make any changes. The final resolution is this same :S And at the Test Mode arrows on my keyboard aren't working. I have so specific computer :D

Like I said I'm no openSUSE user... so I'm out of real tips...

 

Some thoughts:

-Maybe try another keyboard (USB) to get the arrow keys working?

-If your screen has buttons maybe you can adjust something there so you can at least install?

-And if you really into testing: remove the graphics card, try to install openSUSE and after that add the card again and see what happens? No guarantees given... 

 

I hope an openSUSE user comes along to help you!  B)

 

Greets!

Thanks for your answer! With keyboard there is another hilarious situation because on my main keyboard i can't get into UEFI etc. What about removing graphic card? I'm afraid of not having an integrated graphic card :S
