If you cannot turn the laptop on, and you wish to retrieve photos from it's harddrive, you can remove the harddrive, and install it in an external enclosure.

The external enclosure has a USB cable that you plug into any available USB port on a working computer.

Copy the photos to that computer. Burn them off to disk for safekeeping.

The Harddrive is an IDE style of Harddrive
IDE is also known as PATA.

This is but one example,

Instructions come with the external enclosure detailing how to open it, and install the 2.5 IDE harddrive.
