Did they add another pci card or muck with the bios before that happened?
There is (besides mainboard failure) a small chance the resources
(irq/ioports) of the onboard video got occupied or "shared" by another
device which wasn't there first, or the bios settings got mangled.
Open the box, take out every addon pci cards, even sound, nic, modem or
whatever, except graphic card. If that still doesn't work, find the cmos
battery and remove it for a while (power cord unplugged). Then shorten the
contact strips for a moment, take back the battery and hope the best.
