    Have you run any scans on your memory/video memory?

    1. You might want to try this tool here. It takes a little while, but not as long as memtest to run.

    2. You could also try reinstalling his graphic drivers with the latest updated ones (if the test comes back clean).

    3. If these don't work then you could move onto actually testing the systems memory with memtest. Guide on how to get that going

    Hopefully this helps somehow or points you in a better direction

    im pretty sure his graphics are onboard as well, to answer that question.

    Most onboard graphics aren't that great (though there are some exceptions).

    I would say to try the game (if you can) on another computer and run it to see if the same thing happens. Otherwise I would suggest that he upgrade his video card and lose the onboard.

    I switched from onboard to a 9800GT and its amazing.
