Hi djcasey,

DVI to VGA is only necessary for newer cards where the DVI is the primary output, I'd say that's not the case with the x550, however as long as you get picture at all then it means that's the right output.

As for the drivers installation, make sure you run CatUninstaller booting in safe mode to get rid of all trace of ATI software, then reboot normally and proceed with normal installing.

Try both 6.5 and 9.3 versions, in case that was the issue. If the problems persist, send me your video card's hardware IDs.

I don't believe the flicker in the movies will get fixed by this drivers, anyway.
