    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    The 7.04 release of Ubuntu is four years old now, so he should get better hardware support by going with a later release such as 10.04 or 10.10, but it's also important to make sure he's using the correct video drivers with any release that he installs, and to use the correct horiz/vert sync and refresh rates as called for in the user manual for his monitor.
