I had this problem a while back and had the same issues with the
commands not working. Try to run xvattr -a XV_COLORKEY -v 0 from the
command line and you will probably receive a message stating that xvattr
does not exist. If memory serves me correctly you will need to install
the xvattr program and I think I did that with the command "yum install
xvattr". Hopefully this will tell you that there is one program to
install and once it is installed try to run the command again from the
command line. If the program runs now it should then work on reboot and
your blue line problems should be gone.

I have the same problem with the same FX5200.
I tried using the over/under scan, and that just makes the screen
bigger/smaller, but the blue bars are still there.
