Try scanning for viruses. Is this a newly built computer, or an older one?

I seriously doubt its a virus cuz he formatted AND switched out his hard drive, so an antivirus program would do him little good.

^there is probably something wrong with the other parts. See if you replace parts 1 by 1 and figure out which one is causing the problem.

That will cost a shed load of money though.

How many sticks of ram do you have in it? If 2 take one out and try it, then try the other one, if the problem still persists it rules out the ram.
