    Is this your personal / office laptop? What happened before? Have you checked any website/ gaming?

    It might not be possible. Complete restore from scratch might be needed. This is why backups are important as is safe practice on the Internet. First, what "ransomeware" is it?

    Moreover if there is an antivirus installed, you may try to run this in safe mode. Though you mentioned locked, but what did it mean? Locked means you can not reboot your system? Or reboot is OK but can not access operating system? You may disconnect all network/ internet connections & then try again.

    What ransomware? There are a number of variations out there. There are also some YouTube videos on how to remove some of them or a Google search will also provide some solutions. Not all versions can be simply removed. There have been many business hit and they have had to pay to get their data back. That is about all we can provide with out additional details on what ransomware you have been inflicted with .

    We need to know exactly what you see when you power up the laptop, especially the final screen. We can't do analysis through the Internet; you have to tell us.
