white screen of death!
Was playing about with Opensuse as I only installed it last week and started to play around with the fancy graphics so went to the graphics option and selected enable graphics.
Since I have enabled the desktop effect I am resulted with the WHITE SCREEN OF DEATH.
I'm cannot see see any fonts, icons, bars, buttons... (By the way, this white cube of death still rotates properly.)
I can get onto the cli if I choose opensuse failsafe option but dont know if there is a command I can type to reset the settings.

Might be worth checking out /etc/X11/xorg.conf and setting the driver to vesa (obviously being careful to copy what is there now to put it back if it doesn't work).
I don't know much about Suse, but yast2 would have been the first place I looked too.

personally when having problems with suse i always booted up into the command line and simply typed yast.
It gave me enough settings to fix most problems i came across.
If its just the desktop effect thingy then there is a setting in yast to fix it.
If you go to sax2 when in yast it resets the X11 system so fixing most problems
hope this helps
