Could be just thr monitor or something interfering w/the screen itself. Does he have any kind of speaker's next to his monitor ?? sometimes having spaeker's that are not properly sheilded will result in a weird color change spot on the screen do to the magnet.

Some other type's of interference can cause undesired results.such as having stereo receiver's next to a monitor or computer.

I woudld'nt think this would cause the main menu to freeze though would it? It would explain the lines though if it was all the time

Does the computer respond to Alt+Control+Delete commands? Or Alt+Tab commands?
