I regret to your about your brother and family issues.
If you do not know the existing password for BIOS or you have forgotten in, please not that Business class notebooks (including Elitebook, Probook) have better security. You will have to contact HP Support for assistance on removing the password. Here is how >> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html
Support team should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.
Hope this helps.
