House did she yes As are so frightening, anytime I see those videos current her husband hidden a tub while the tornado destroyed their whole house and her laptop was sitting on, her bed and after the tornado. It. Rained for four straight days wow, so they finally, got the laptop pulled it, out dried it out for weeks turned back. On and? It was still working was it then she? Dropped.

So all her pictures everything she has those personal is sitting on that laptop. That she can't see the screen of she did. Not have a backup are not gonna I do I go I mean you remember you don't remember because you, didn't. Have, nuns but the, sisters, of mercy? Where I in like anything I.

Or what yeah right I it comes on. The screen is shattered so I have no way of knowing where the cursor needs to be to, bring up the pitcher. The files and stuff it's gonna other. Files on there too but I've got a lot of pictures of my, kids and my, grandkids and of course tornado pitchers and stuff on there that I really wanted to keep playing Hung onto, a laptop and he just kind of takes up space in my bedroom Well? Now we have to, figure out how to get all the good stuff off right Yes yes the. Good. News is is, that you can probably hook up an external monitor to that thing okay and there's a. There's probably an HDMI poured or just a video, port on, the back of that, thing and depending on. How old the laptop is laptop it's. A it's such a Sheba twenty six inch monitor it's probably. Five to seven years old I. Picture, there's a video port on the back of that it's old enough to have. One Yeah and so if you buy yourself a cheap little. Monitor fifty bucks something like that Okay and you just hook that in and then when somewhere on. That, keyboard will be two keys that you need to press and those teach to. Keys. Well allow you to switch the screen from the laptop, screen to the display screen Okay and you just have to look normally it's. Like, it's normally it's like I got control key function key or something like that If you look they'll be like something, that, looks like a like an oval and that's. Normally. The key stroke that that magical keystroke. On the keyboard where you can say okay show me what's on on an external monitor And so that would be an does the keyboard work because, you, can normally hook up an external keyboard too I really don't know afraid to. Even attempt anything until I. Found out, what I, really needed to do because I don't wanna lose. Those pictures that's all I have left you know I mean update my my phone and change phones at this Cell, phone company I threatened them to their lives right Well here's what you know what I I don't I I'm?
