No, if it were locked you would come to the prompt screen for the password. Sounds like the operating system has crashed or became corrupted. Try reformatting and reinstalling Windows 98, or upgrade it it will handle Windows XP

My gateway laptop cursor is frozen

This is caused by conflicting drivers.

Start off in Safe mode.

press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

Then you should be able to use the mouse, see what programs have been recently installed that may have caused the conflict.

That depends greatly on how it's locked. BIOS locks on modern machines are sometimes unpassable (if it asks you before the windows logo appears).

If you've forgotten windows password, you can follow Microsoft's instructions here.

Note book locked on password and i cant open the notebook

Please check when you get the password, if you get a password after the Dell logo before the Windows logo then its the BIOS password. - You need to contact Dell for the same.

If you get the password after the windows logo - windows logon password, then you need to specify the windows version for trying to bypass the passwords.

You will need to buy an original Windows 98 (or newer, such as Windows XP) installation disk and Certificate of Authenticity with 25-digit registration key, then use it to reinstall Windows on the laptop. Nothing from your home PC will do this for you, unfortunately. You can probably find a Windows 98 installation disk fairly cheaply on the internet.
