If Windows is stopping him from reinstalling there are issues with his user profile. It might help to use a different user profile, one authorized to install software (an administrator profile) when installing. The screen just going black could mean either a corrupt installation so installing again should fix it, or a problem with the video card. If that's the case then installing the latest updates for the video card drive ought to solve it.

Tight lines,

Paul
