Hi steve1964...

I'm sorry for your loss. I lost my sister not too long ago, too.

We can't help you with the password problem as it's against our Terms of Use to help in breeching system security. However, I can tell you that if you remove the hard drive, put it in an external enclosure, and connect it to another machine, you may be able to recover the photographs of your sister.

You will likely need a 2.5" enclosure like one of These.

To use the machine, you'll have to format and reinstall the operating system...unless you can find someone who knows the password.
