What a neat little toy.

Well,......................I guess I'm sort of like an old hound dog 
with a bad nose. Barking up the wrong tree. Sorry to have caused so much 

With all the thrashing and trashing I totally trashed the install. No 
big deal at this point cause it was fresh and nothing of any importance 
loaded into it yet.

Re-installed and ran xvidtune. It looks like everything is in spec.

Now I don't know what to do to fix the flickering screen.

Life is what happens while your busy making other plans.
