There are only so many restore points that windows XP can retain. This is dependant on the amount of space you have reserved for restores. If restore points have been deleted then I'm afraid there gone for good ... sorry.
As an after thought, have you updated your graphics card drivers recently. I mention this because I had a situation recently where I ran an install to upgrade my drivers before first removing the old drive. I had a very similar effect and when I looked at the add remove software, I discovered that I had two setd of drivers loading for the graphics card. Removing one of these corrected the problem.
if your dad hasnt done too much other work since deleting the files then it may be possible to undelete them using special programs. however, if your dad turned OFF system restore to delete the files then i think you can forget it.
do a google search for undelete and browse through the results.
