    Can you provide a little more information such as what you mean, exactly, by 'locked out'? Is there a password prompt and you don't know the password? If so, is it a power-on password or an OS password (Windows NT, 2000, or XP) or are you receiving errors?

    Seems unlikely, but if that is the case delete files from within dos.

    Or try safe mode.
