Urgent guitar tweaking help needed! I want to fix my brother's guitar before he goes back home in the morning...

It's a cheap Squier Strat that he bought as part of a beginner's package deal thing online somewhere. As I feared, it doesn't stay in tune worth a damn. Took it to the local Guitar Center but they said they don't do that sort of repair/tweaking work anymore (I, of course, thought, "Then who does?") Anyways, I've got it taken apart right now, but I can't find any how-to tutorial thing anywhere on the web. A video would be ideal. The guy at Guitar Center said something about the tremolo unit, bridge, and the neck bend all needing to be tweaked. If you read this within an hour or two of my posting this (1:40am on the East Coast here), can you point me to any good videos or simple tutorials about how to do this work? Thanks so much.
