She was moving things around and probably disconnected something.

And I had to make it clear to her that the computer was a different piece. Then, to top it off, my schizophrenic brother was trying to help her. He is delusional and thinks he is an expert on all things computer hardware. He was explaining to me that two satellites had collided and that once the download was complete, the computer would be OK. He had my mom convinced that he had the solution to the problem but I told her what he said was (expletive deleted). She is going to have to get somebody local to see what she has disconnected. I guess this is marginally on topic since we were discussing
