1-Is the laptop locked right after powering on-  and not booting up to Windows logon screen? (which would be a BIOS password problem)

 

If it is BIOS password it is asking for type anything such as Mary and tap Enter key. Do this twice more and you should get a message about System Halted and it will display a code on the screen. Post that code here.

 

2-Or does it boot to Windows logon screen and you can't log in?
