Num lock/caps lock not responding?
Is there a response when he presses <alt>+<ctrl>+<backspace> ? This resets your X-session - back to login screen.

Subject: [ubuntu-za] Problem New Install
this past week, i went to a friends house and installed a fresh copy of
ubuntu on his pc, dual booting with windows...
the instalation went great and all, but then, this weekend he phoned me
with a problem, im goona put here translated to english what he had to
say, any help would be much apreciated.
"i mas fiddling with my audio mixer (i have a soundcard soundblaster
live 5.1 from creative) when i activated an option called "... mixer"
(can't remember the name but it was on the section called Switchers),
then the pc started to make a funny noise. so i undid the option i had
activated and decided to logout and login because the sound didnt stop.
when i logged out, the pc froze in a black screen, and doesnt go
anywhere from there.
so i forced the pc to reset, i saw the ubuntu loading bar, but just
when it was about to appear the splash screen, a black screen with some
funny stripes appear as u can see on the attached image.
im using ubuntu 9.10"
i tried asking him, when that funny screen appears, if he can go to one
of the terminals with the command alt+f1, but he says the keyboard
doenst respond to any commands.
