That sounds like a video card or monitor problem.
If you have a spare monitor try that. If it doesn't work then see how his monitor is hooked up. If he has both a video card and an onboard video, try switching to the onboard video. If not try to find a spare Known-working video card and try that.

You would need to just switch the monitor cable to the port that is closer to the top of the tower. But I would check in the setup if it doesn't work. Every once in a while, that option in setup will make a difference but not very often.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

If it is up above near the mouse and keyboard ports then it is the onboard video. If it is down lower it is a video card. Either way, you should try swapping monitors first and if that doesn't work (which is very likely) then try a different video card.
