are the graphics really blocky? If it is, then your resolution is too low (once upon a time I managed to get windows running at 320x240), otherwise I think you have the font size set to large (you can change it in the system tab of the display properties dialog, try booting to safe mode to get to it)

He is not using accesibilty options is he? Your friend that is? Because a particular key stroke or mouse click could have induced the magnifier ability?

Driver or card went bad, hope it's not onboard.

if it is onboard all you would do is put a PCI video card in ,if there is no AGP slot ,disable the onboard ,
