ask the friend to start in safe mode F8 as it says starting windows ...see if the display improves..

Get her to start in safe mode. Right click desktop and pick properties. Now get her to drop resolution and colour depth down to minimum. Also see if she can drop the refresh rate down.

Then reboot to normal mode. Fixed?

If not, restart in safe mode and delete graphics card from device manager and reboot.

If this don't work, you may be looking at a new graphics card or monitor.

I had the same sort of problem a while back and was helped out by the forum members here. See click here It turned out to be wonky graphics card drivers that needed reloading!! Hope this helps.
