Sounds like th clutch brake is engaged. Try Pushing firmly foward on the hand guard in front of the handle. It should click to release the clutch brake.
Let me know if this helps.

I think its an outboard clutch, use this as a guide. A YouTube video shows the procedure using a Husqvarna 350 here:
1. I cannot find an IPL for your saw, it may require special tools.
2. A length of starter cord or nylon rope may be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and be cut when the piston rises.
3. It is probably a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
Let us know how it worked for you. GL

She is English? You can download a manual here:
There are 3 please ensure this is your saw.
Using this IPL as a guide it appears reasonably simple.
I'd ensure it is unplugged, the chain brake disengaged, and try to move the chain by hand (gloves are a good idea). If you can't move the chain or the clutch cover seems stuck use the "Service Locater". If you can move the chain; remove the clutch cover, loosen the bar and remove the chain. I see no reason the saw cannot be operated for short periods without the clutch cover to aid in isolating the problem. She will oil your mate won't be happy if you oil the table. GL
Please let us know the outcome. It helps us help others.

RYOBI----- with the motor running at high revs the chain stops indicates that the sprocket behind the centrifugal clutch is worn out or the centrifugal clutch itself ,or the clutch shoes are worn out the way to tell is to remove the bar and chain and have alook where the chain was conected to the saw, i think you will see the sprocket is buggered and as that is attatched to the clutch drum that will have to be replaced along with clutch springs and shoes, i think you have been running the chain a bit too loose or not running it at realy high revs ,which is what they are designed to do ,cme back to me if you feel the need
