It's the monitor or graphics card. Ask him to try another monitor and tell us what happens.

yeah like rohan said, try another monitor and see if it still happens. Otherwise...get a video card and try it out.

Its a video problem forsure, now its only a matter of finding out which component is the culprit of the defect....the monitor? or video card?

Try the monitor suggestion, and then if nothing...try the video card aka installing one.
