I have the exact same problem with 4363 on my 1955. I just got the laptop, so I'm going to try backing off to 4349 like you did.
BTW: The black borders are normal for LCD displays. It's better to have each pixel rasterized to an lcd element than try to spread pixels across lcd boundaries. That usually looks washed out, thin, and weak.
EDIT: I just reverted back to the 4349 drivers, and now I see the black bars you mean.. VERY annoying! There's a terrible overscan problem with this laptop when you're not using it's full LCD display size. BUT -- at least the driver initializes without blooming the screen!
