Mabe are you using a copy burned from the original warcraft cd?
The original cd was burned with a anticopy mechanism, I don't remeber its name. But if you make a copy of the warcraft, you can install the game, but in the moment to start to playing, a dialog box will pappear in the screen with something like "The warcraft cd was not found in the device. Please insert trhe right cd on the cd rom device"

If you want have a copy of your original warcraft cd you need a burn software like alcohol 120. Is a good choice. This program burns cd copies with anticopy mechanisms.

Good luck!!!

Sounds Like A Video Card problem or he has the settins set to high on the game. If this is one of the games that has a ini file for the video settings try setting it to a lower resolution by manually editing the ini file with a text editor if that does not help or casues another error remove the program and reinstall it with lower video settings.
