I've had that happen before as a driver, not a hardware, issue.

How long has his most recent Windows installation been going? Could be about ready for a reinstall.

However, try going to the display properties and make sure that his onboard video is being properly identified. If so, change it to "Standard Display Adapter (VGA)" and reboot the computer to Safe Mode. Open up the Device Manager tag under System Properties (Control Panel), see if any entries remain under Display Adapters. Delete them. Also check Monitors -- if there are any duplicates, delete ALL instances.

Reboot normally, run the driver installation for his onboard video, reboot again when prompted by the driver installation utility, and then see if it works or not.
