Probably a faulty hard drive. go into the setup screen and verify the HD setting is correct. save your settings and reboot. if this doesn't solve it, then take out battery and disconnect power, remove hard drive and reconnect. try reboot. if none of that works, then replace hard drive and reinstall OS.
probable but unlikely
the control valve for the water ( hot or cold ) has a diaphragm in the main flow with a small hole in it to act like a pressure regulator
so when the solenoid shuts off the water , water flows through that small hole and locks the diaphragm firmly on the seat
I suggest that the low flow is because that diaphragm has been compromised and is not opening correctly for full water flow
take it apart and clean it out or replace it
Need more information. How did you lock it? In the BIOS?
Assuming you did this in the BIOS you will need to enter the BIOS by hitting F1, F2 or DEL while the computer is booting in BIOS. Sometimes you will see the BIOS key noted on the bottom of the Boot screen. On the first BIOS screen check to see if your HD is listed. If so go to the BOOT screen. On the BOOT screen check the boot order. To move the HD to the top click on the HD and click on the "+" key to move it up of select it if you get an options window. In the BOOT SETTINGS screen click on the HD to varify that the correct HD is listed. If more than one HD you can move the boot drive up by using the "+" key or options window. Check your other settings. When done hit ESC and go to the last screen and select to SAVE and Reboot.
If you locked yourself out at the Windows Password screen. If you are using Windows XP Home, reboot and hit F8, F10 or F12 during BIOS boot. Select SAFE MODE. When Windows open go to the Control Panel - Users and delete the users. This will remove the passwords. Close windows and reboot computer. Windows will now start and open without passwords. If you are using XP Pro you will need to take the computer to a Tech who will have a Password Disc to clear the passwords.
the only way to get past the bios password is to open up the case and try to find a jumper on the main board that says bios reset, close that jumper and turn on the computer for one boot, power down and remove the jumper, after that the bios should be reset(bios passwords are usually set as a security measure that is not easy for the average user to bypass such as a windows one that can be removed by formatting the drive and reinstalling windows)
i think there is some issues with the OS because i noticed you can't shut it down properly so maybe the files needed in order to shut down had been corrupted but one more theory, the bios settings make sure that everythings configured properly there by checking the power options on the bios setup(the blue screen)so try setting it to default and change the boot priority to HDD,CDROM,FLOPPY.

Questions? Post here.
Go to the BIOS menu and select the Main Tab... see if the computer sees your drive. If not send it to the manufacturer or look to see if you can get to the HD without cracking open the main case to the laptop if you can... check the connection from the HD to the connectors to the motherboard
