Flashing what? If it is video but flickering it may be your screen resolution
Check your monitor for it's optimum resolution and then set your mini to display accordingly in System Preferences.

It sounds like your monitor is having trouble with the refresh rate the mini is using by default. You can try 2 things, wither a different monitor (sometimes this is impossible). or you can do a safe boot. See below.
- Shut down your Mac. If necessary, hold your Mac's power button for several seconds to force it to power down.
- Start your Mac, then immediately hold the Shift key. This performs a Safe Boot. Advanced tip: If you want to see the status of a Safe Boot as it progresses, you can hold Shift-Command-V during start up (instead of just Shift).
Note: A Safe Boot takes longer than a typical start up because it includes a disk check and other operations.
After the safe boot, you may be able to get to system preferences and choose an appropriate resolution for your monitor.
