chain slap on front derailleur

Not being much of a mechanic (though I can do some simple things) I wonder if one of you mechanics could help me. I have a Madone 5.1 and when I am in the 50 ring on the cranks and towards the 15 and lower rings on the cassette I have chain slap on the derailleur. On some of my other road bikes I know how to adjust the cable where it comes out of the brifter but the madone has the cables in the frame. I have two set screws on the front derailleur. What should I try first?
Tx for the help.
