Here is what I've asked him so far....
As Root what is the output of ....(I assume this works in Mint as it does on my VL box and will give the video card info.)
lspci | grep VGA
Did he use Envy to set up his video?
and does he get the same behaviour when he uses he live CD?
If anyone has a good idea of what his trouble might be, your help would be greatly appreciated.
