There are a number of things you can try.
Download http://www.ubuntu.com/download and install it in on a cd or jump drive.
Try booting the laptop off the disk or jump drive. If it runs, then the OS is corrupted.
If it still won't boot, download http://www.memtest86.com/ and install to cd or USB jump drive and test memory.
You first must narrow down the possibilities.
You can always have him boot into safe mode and try to do a system restore.
Sounds like either memory or operating system.
But until you get the laptop and try these few simple things, it will be hard to diagnose it.
Besides, if you fix it for him, the price may go up or he may keep it. Good luck
