System restore to a date when it worked might work.

Tell him to try running it in safe mode.Just keep tapping F8 as the computer starts.

Or try Device Manager.Right click my computer.Properties.Hardware.Device Manager.See if there are any yellow exclamation marks beside audio and video and game controllers.
