Leave your BIOS at default.

Keep all unneeded devices disconnected--printers, USB devices, etc.

Do you have anything left in the motherboard slots? You shouldn't need anything if you are using onboard video and onboard LAN.

Are you using just 1 good stick of RAM?

Do you have access to another keyboard and mouse?

Here is one suggestion I found:

go to MSCONFIG and choose BOOT and ADVANCED.
Mark the processor field and choose the maximimun numbers of processors.

I think you would choose 4 since you have a quad. I don't have anything checked on my PC, but it can'lt hurt to try this.

As far as we know, he is now on onboard video.

I'd guess he should stay with an absolute minimum hardware setup for troubleshooting purposes until this sobers up. Swap in the bare necessities if available--KB, mouse, PSU, single RAM stick.

Since you have a video card installed, then I'd suggest going into the bios and disabling onboard video, as well as the onboard audio for now.
