Here's the latest video card drivers from your computer manufacturer, although knowing the type of card itself would likely give you more updated drivers:



Here's a link to your latest BIOS Update... However, I wouldn't do this unless you know what you're doing:

Also, when you're in the Catalyst Control Panel (Video Settings) you should be able to adjust the region in the Video out settings. There should be a coupe options, NTSC and PAL, you have to set yours to PAL if you're in england.
