Question about Toshiba Satellite L455DS5976 Notebook
Hi, depending on what you are doing:
1) Locked means it is looking for a password; unless you have failed multiple times with a bad password, just enter your password.
2) If you are "locked out" just wait about 30 minutes; an internal timer prevents people from "attempting" to break into a computer by guessing a password, this is for your protection.
That answers your question. However, if you want to add additional information: what were you doing when this happened; what did you attempt to do to remedy it; will yield a better answer. dw

Asus Eee PCs run on the Windows XP SP2 operating system. Accounts in Windows XP SP2 can easily be password-protected, but the same password can just as easily be forgotten.
At moments like this, you'll wish you had chosen a password that is both secure and easy to remember, or kept a record of it in a private place.
The quickest way to get back on the computer is to seek out someone with an administrator account on the computer.
Press "Control" + "Alt" + "Delete" at the same time on the locked screen.
Select "Switch User."
Remember, only an administrator account registered on this computer can unlock the computer.
Type in "administrator" in the user name box.
Type the password that corresponds to the administrator user name in the password box .
Click "OK." The Asus Eee PC is unlocked.
Hope this helps
