So you can't login to your Mac?

You can see the login screen, but not login to any account, is that right?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
I can log into my apps and internet use is ok. I need to find or reset "user password", and login keychain. I don't use keychain but that is required on one step of this process.

I can see the photos on the sd card while trying to find a way around.
Expert:  David replied 5 days ago.
You can reset the login keychain in a few different ways and should try first using Keychain Access app.
Open /Applications/Utilities/Keychain
From the Keychain Access menu, choose Preferences.
Click General, then click Reset My Default Keychain.
If it asks for your login password ***** the last one you remember.
If you can't reset the Keychain password ***** of the login password ***** me know.
