Well, does he have fans? Even though i dont see how it would happen on startup. The video card might be defective, or its simply overheating, thats preety weird. Why dont you take his video card and put it into your computer if you can and see what happens with it, from then we can think of other ideas if that doesnt work

Looks like its overheating. Simple solution. New video card.. Really, their isnt another choice, because it sounds that he has ample cooling. So there is nothing he can do about it.

it would be an upgrade from what he has. if you gotta get a new one you might as well go bigger and better.
