If this is a problem with all Excel files with coloured cells, the Windows OS
high contrast setting may be turned on. There is information in the
following MSKB article:

OFF: Changes to Fill Color and Fill Pattern Are Not Displayed

Unless of course he just bought the cheaper Black and White version of Excel
instead of the Colour one. <g
