The problem reappears after some while, it starts after 5-10 minutes when box is closed.

The test was made with an another power supply and the vpn removed.

See here, from one second to another the display is corrupted:
# ping
PING ( 56 data bytes
m-o 172—L³‰šrŽ†¥¹Íñ‡Ñ¥ÍÑ¥Íµµ·7)ÉŁÁ‡­·Ñ́ÑÉ…¹Í·§ÑÑ•‘±ÁƒÁ
drwxm---m-```4 voot  

May be the power supply is not enough when both vpn card and hd are connected, that would explain the sudden reboots that happened a few times. 

But there the display problem is another problem, which one, hmm really don't know....
