I checked in the box by the message Don't show this message again" and
tried to clicking on OK, the above message reoccured so I tried to close
the window and noticed CONTINOUS FLASHING WHITE SCREENS.

can I please also have the output of lspci -n?
Also, can you test and see if the XFree86 3.3.6 server (XFree86-Mach64) works
