    Most likely a power supply problem. Based on the rest of the system specs, I'm guessing the PSU in his computer (an HP, I'm guessing) is far too underpowered to work with an 8800GT.

    Required for 880 GT = Minimum of a 400 Watt power supply. (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 22 Amp Amps.)

    Is that really power supply problem? By the way thanks for the reply but I just to make sure before ask him to change the power supply. Just worried if after replaced the power supply the problem still come out.

    well, its most likely a power supply but tell him to try cleaning out the case of all the dust and ask him to check if the card is overheating, those are some serious upgrades and it certainly sounds like a hardware problem

    Could be heat also although looks like PSU.

    Also try downloading NTune from the NVidia website and manually adjust the GPU fan speed to around 50% then try running the games. Worth a try because it's a free option, always good to try any possible 'free' fixes before spending any cash.

    Some 8800GT cards to have heat issues (I have one myself)
