Lightbulb Desktop Flickers and freezes on XP - 01-26-2010, 07:09 PM

Hi I am new to the forum.
I bought a mini 10V and got it last week.
the first time I turn it on, the configuration started and then it froze and the screen wass all messed up (the image was with lines and the mouse pointer was doubled)

any ways I restarted it and it went through

Next day I turn it back on and the same image/frozen happens (only when entering to windows).

To fix this issue I just boot and enter in VGA mode and it works.

I installed the latest driver for my graphic card (intel gma )
I run the diagnostics and it shows everything ok but a strange ISCSI flash error.

I called dell and they sent me a box for checkup.
I decided to install mac while I was waiting for the box, and now I don;t have any issues with it freezing.
I think it might as well be a sw issue from xp (driver error)

should I be worried for the IScsi error in the diagnostics?
or this is normal?
